NFL referees returned to the gridiron recently after a brief strike which saw replacement referees calling important games. Nine-year-old WKMS Youth Reporter Patrick Jones scored an interview with one of NFL's most famous official referees, Ed Hochuli. He was ranked by ESPN as one of the best referees in the business. More recently, you'll find him on the cover of the October issue of Sports Illustrated. Patrick spoke with him over the phone, from our studio.
Special thanks to Patrick’s dad, Rusty Jones, for coordinating the interview. If your child has an interest in youth reporting, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
