Beginning the 2015 pro-football season, there will be a lady on the field. Sarah Thomas is expected to be the first permanent female referee in the NFL. She said about the NFL referees--"All these guys have years and years of experience and knowledge and know what the next level is looking for so if I can learn why not learn from them.”

Sarah has worked her way up from officiating at high school games, to college, games and has been in the NFL's Officiating Development program. She also officiated a preseason game last season.

Congratulations, Sarah!
