For the first time in NFL history a woman has been hired full time to referee games. Women make up 45 percent of the NFL fan base – this is awesome! Sarah Thomas – a native of Mississippi – told the NFL network
“I set out to do this and get involved in officiating not having any idea that there were not any females officiating football. Being a former basketball player, you saw female officiating all the time, so no I don’t feel like a pioneer.”
Super cool & exciting. For more on this story click here.
