Thibodaux native to officiate upcoming Super Bowl

A Thibodaux native will be part of the decision-making team that's going to officiate the upcoming Super Bowl.

Longtime NFL official Carl Johnson was announced this week as a member of the crew assigned to Super Bowl LIV in Miami. 

Johnson will be a line judge in the game.

Johnson is a veteran official with decades of experience in the NFL. He has worked multiple Super Bowls and countless high-stakes playoff games.

When not working at the premiere level, Johnson also works local high school games sometimes, and he lends his knowledge and expertise to local officials trying to elevate themselves within the craft.

To be a Super Bowl official, one must be graded out as among the best of the best in a respective season.
