PNFOA members Steve Kovac and Michael Livingston had very successful seasons in 2016. Kovac worked one of the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) Semi-Final Games, the 2016 Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, AZ. Livingston worked the 2016 DII National Championship Game in Kansas City, MO. Steve and Michael’s journey to the big game is an inspiration for all officials that work hard to get to that big assignment. What’s more, their success is another feather in the cap of the PNFOA which has an impressive tradition of helping nurture a steady stable of football officials who continue to work at the highest levels.

Why Become a Football Official?
If you are interested in becoming a football official, no experience required-just a special place in your heart for football, we would very much like to hear from you.
If you have played football at any level, you probably already have that special place in your heart for football. What could be a better way for you to stay involved in the game and give back for all the memories that it created for you?
We will provide the training and guidance needed for you to learn the rules and the skills required to become a football official. Training consists of both classroom and on-field sessions and it starts in mid-July. Assistance is available, if needed, to help in acquiring uniforms and the necessary equipment.
Ladies, we welcome your participation too. No reason that guys should have all the fun, come and join us.
And, did we mention, you get paid for officiating too!!
