The National Football League announced their 2018 roster of game officials last month. The roster for the upcoming regular season will include seven first-year NFL officials among the group of 121.

Field judge Land Clark (Pacific 12), field judge Matt Edwards (Big Ten), side judge Chad Hill (Southeastern Conference), field judge Anthony Jefferies (Southeastern Conference), back judge Tony Josselyn  (Southeastern Conference), line judge Mark Stewart (Big 12) and field judge Don Willard (Big Ten) will make their NFL officiating debuts this season.

Four officials – Shawn Hochuli, Alex Kemp, Clay Martin and Shawn Smith – have been promoted to referee for the upcoming season. Each of them were referees at the highest level of college football prior to entering the NFL at different positions and have been part of the NFL’s Referee Training Program from their first season in the league.

Both Shawn Hochuli (Ed Hochuli) and Alex Kemp (Stan Kemp) are the sons of former NFL referees.

Two sets of fathers and sons are included among the roster of officials — Walt Coleman, the dean of NFL officials entering his 30th season and his son, Walt IV; Steve Freeman and his son, Brad — and three sets of brothers – Allen and Rusty Baynes; Jeff and Jerry Bergman along with and Carl, Dino and Perry Paganelli.

Steve Freeman and Phil McKinnley are the only current game officials to have also enjoyed NFL playing careers. Freeman played for 13 seasons, including 12 as a defensive back with the Buffalo Bills from 1975–86. McKinnely played for seven seasons on the offensive line from 1976–82, including five seasons with the Atlanta Falcons from 1976–80.
