NFL To Appoint First Female Referee

Sarah Thomas will be hired as the National Football League’s first full-time female referee, according to reports from the Baltimore Sun. While the NFL has not yet confirmed these reports, they carry a fair bit of merit as Thomas has officiated football games in the NCAA as well as for NFL preseason games and training camps. Thomas became the first female official for a major NCAA game in 2007, and speculation about the possibility of her making the jump to the big league have been circling for a while. Assuming these reports are true, it would be a big moment for female officials not only in football, but hopefully in major sports around the world.
