"The academy taught me so much and I really do appreciate all the work everyone put into making it work. It would be really cool if there were other programs and clinics to help us at further stages in our officiating career. Even if the NFL is not involved if the organization is aware of any other good clinics in the Metro area I'd love to stay updated. I am continuing to look to improve at any step I can."

-2012 FOA Graduate, Evan C.

“When your playing days are done and you still have that passion for the game of football, officiating offers you a great opportunity to stay involved with the game you love. Get involved with your local football officiating organization. You will enjoy giving something back to your community, meeting quality people and you just can’t imagine how far it may take you. I signed up to officiate Pee Wee football games when I was twenty one years old. Eighteen years later I began working NFL games and worked Super Bowl XLII. Now I work at the league office.”

-Carl Johnson, V.P. Officiating, National Football League
