Episode 132: College Football Officiating — A Life of Stripes: A Look Beyond the Gridiron w/Greg LeFils

With college football starting up in a couple of weeks, this episode couldn’t come at a more perfect time! Meet Greg LeFils; he has been involved in football officiating his entire life, since his father, Greg Sr., was also a high school and NCAA FBS official for 40 years. Greg currently works as a Center Judge for a prominent football conference in the Southeastern United States. He has served in that capacity for 6 seasons and has been selected for four Bowl games and one Conference Championship. Prior to his current post, he has officiated NCAA Div. 2, NCAA FCS, and NCAA FBS football since 2008 and officiated High School football for the Central Florida Officials Association in Orlando, Florida from 2000-2009.

In this episode, we not only talk about the journey to becoming an official, how it works, and lessons (or transfers) we can all apply to life – especially as we near college football season – but we get a behind the scenes look at all the things happening between plays, call reviews, and more! This is a great episode for those who love football as well as those wanting to learn a bit more before the season. 

This episode was hosted by Emmy (@dremmyb).
