Sarah Thomas didn’t grow up wanting to be an official. Being raised in an athletic family led her to be a competitive athlete. But when her playing days were over, she still wanted to be involved in high-level sports. That led to her pursuing a career as an official, starting small before eventually landing on the NFL stage. This past February, she became the first female to officiate in a Super Bowl. She has a great perspective about it, including having a good sense of humor.
