John Hussey among officials for Super Bowl
From San Pedro, California to the big game: Mary Star alumnus John Hussey is assigned as line judge for the Super Bowl. The NFL has selected Walt Anderson to referee the Super Bowl. The other members of the officiating crew announced Thursday are umpire Chad Brown, head linesman Kent Payne, field judge Doug Rosenbaum, side judge Mike Weatherford and back judge Scott Helverson. Hussey will be wearing #35 on his zebra-striped official shirt.
Under the NFL officiating program’s evaluation system, the highest-rated eligible officials at each position earn the right to work the Super Bowl. Super Bowl officials must have at least five years of NFL experience and previous playoff experience.
Hussey has nine years of experience.
