JAMIE H. VAUGHT: Former Wildcat John McGrath Shines As NFL Official

If you are a pro football fan watching an NFL game nearly every Sunday on television, you certainly will recognize a familiar face — a well-respected official who is from Kentucky.

That guy is John McGrath (pictured), a Louisville native who is beginning his 14th year as an official (head linesman) in the NFL with appearances in post-season playoffs and 2010 Super Bowl (featuring the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts).

Asked about his Super Bowl experience, McGrath said he didn’t feel any more different nor more pressure to do well.
