One day before America inaugurates Kamala Harris as the first female Vice President of the United States, another woman makes history on the football field. Today, the NFL announced that Sarah Thomas will be the first woman to serve as an official in a Superbowl.

In 2015, she became the first female official in the history of the NFL, and she has not stopped breaking barriers since. Thomas was the first woman to ever officiate a major college game, referee in a Big Ten stadium, serve on a officiate team in a bowl game and now she makes history again. As a down judge of the officiating team in Superbowl LV in Tampa, Florida, she will be officiating the heat of the action from the Superbowl sideline.

Thanks for being a female warrior and role model for us all!
