Former Penn State Football Linebacker Terry Killens To Officiate Super Bowl LVIII
Former Penn State football linebacker Terry Killens will be a part of Super Bowl LVIII’s officiating crew, the league announced Tuesday.
Killens will serve as the umpire on Sunday, February 11, in Las Vegas, and will be the first person to both play in and officiate a Super Bowl.
Killens began officiating in 2019, and his first playoff game came two years later. This is the first Super Bowl the 1995 Penn State graduate will officiate.
Before having a seven-year NFL career with the Houston Oilers, San Francisco 49ers, and Seattle Seahawks, Killens wore blue and white for three years, including the Nittany Lions’ 12-0 season in 1994. Throughout that season, Killens recorded 42 tackles and served as a captain in 1995.
Following his playing career, Killens remained involved with football, becoming a coach at Purcell Marian High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he attended prior to Penn State.
Killens joins three other officials on the eight-person crew who will make their Super Bowl debut in February.
