Sarah Thomas can add one more achievement to her already impressive resume.
Thomas, who began her officiating career calling high school games in 1999, became the first female referee in major college football in 2007. Two years later she became the first female ref to officiate a postseason game when she worked the 2009 Little Caesars Bowl. Thomas has worked several NFL minicamps, and she could be a permanent NFL referee as soon as 2014.
This week the NCAA announced that Thomas will be a line judge at the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl between BYU and Washington. With head linesman Maia Chaka also assigned, this will be the first time two women will officiate an FBS game.
Earlier this year a Division II game between Miles College and Lane had four female officials, making it the first NCAA game with a majority-female officiating crew.
