Center of Officiating Universe


It was announced today that Matt Edwards from the Big Ten was hired by the NFL officiating staff. Matt is originally from Michigan, but had some of his early high school and college officiating experience in Indiana, and he now lives in Fishers. Last year Steve Woods (Franklin) and Brian Bolinger (Leo) were hired by the NFL. Both worked HS football in Indiana earlier in their careers. That is an amazing representation from one state. It builds on the 3 active and 1 retired official that live in Central Indiana: Dana McKenzie, Greg Bradley, Bryan Neale, and Mark Baltz (retired). All but Dana worked high school football in Indiana before ascending through the collegiate ranks.

You never know when that official you are berating on the field on Friday night (or Monday night for that matter) may one day be officiating in the NFL. Please applaud these members of our officiating fraternity for achieving the pinnacle of our career. In addition to these fine men, Indiana is also home to 17 Division I football officials. Most of them are still actively involved with the IFOA and help give back to their local associations.

Not bad for a basketball official!
