Women are making way in the football world other than being wives and cheerleaders. Sarah Thomas is the first female official for the NFL. She has been working as an official during the New Orleans Saints’ minicamp practices.
This isn’t the first time Thomas has broken a barrier. She was the first woman to work college games in 2007.
Thomas has work in Conference USA and the United Football League. She also worked the NFL preseason games in 2013 and ’14 as part of the league’s officiating development program.
I’m glad to see women making a way in male dominated areas like football.
