Let’s play by the rules.

The year was 2020, and a small-town Minnesota ref was ready to tackle his life’s goal: reffing in the NFL. That dream fell apart as the COVID-19 pandemic hit. But he wasn’t deterred. He wasn’t going to waste his talents. People weren’t following CDC and MDH guidelines and more people were getting sick. It was time for someone to step up. It was time for the COVID Ref. When he’s not quarantining in an empty locker room and learning new skills, like the piano, he’s reffing the pandemic and keeping people safe.

Be a team player! Follow COVID guidelines and help the COVID Ref get back to reffing games, not the pandemic.​
