For the IHSAA Larry umpired in eighteen sectionals, fifteen regionals, fourteen semi-states and the Final Four on three occasions . Three times he was rated as the number one high school umpire by a coaches vote. To the North-South All-Star Series he gave of his time and talent on eight different occasions.
