Sarah Thomas to Become First Female Official at Super Bowl

Sarah Thomas

Here's the full Super Bowl officiating crew, featuring Thomas as the down judge.

Down judge Sarah Thomas will make history as the first woman ever to officiate a Super Bowl.

While this is her first time working a Super Bowl, Thomas has been a mainstay in the NFL since breaking into the league in 2015.

This story will be updated.

Referee Carl Cheffers will lead the seven-person crew of on-field game officials for the Super Bowl on February 7 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. "They are the best of the best". "Congratulations to Sarah on this well-deserved honor".

COVID-19: 93 deaths today and 73 Galway cases
Additionally, there are 329 individuals now hospitalized with the virus, 70 of whom are in intensive care. That update brought the total number of cases confirmed in B.C. since the pandemic began to 61,447.

Thomas helped Mobile reach the NAIA national tournament in 1993 and was named a Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete in 1995.

It's far from the first glass ceiling that Thomas has shattered in her career. She first commanded the sidelines of a high school football game back in 1999. On Sept. 14, 2007, she became the first woman to officiate in a game involving a major-college football program when she worked Memphis' contest against Jacksonville State.

In what was a year of firsts in the NFL, the league has at least one more first to announce.

Baynes will work as the line judge at Super Bowl LV. Carl Jr. has worked four Super Bowls, while Perry two. Cheffers was the referee for Super Bowl LI when the New England Patriots rallied to defeat the Atlanta Falcons in overtime, 34-28, in Houston.

We don't know which teams will be facing off in Super Bowl LV, but we can already confirm that history will be made on the sidelines.
