Twelve NFL players, including two former Giants defensive backs, will take part in the upcoming Tom Beard Football Officials Clinic this week in Baltimore.
Held at the Maritime Institute and Morgan State University from March 14-16, Mark Collins, who played eight seasons for the Giants and helped the franchise win its first two Super Bowls, and C.C. Brown, who played for New York in 2009, will participate with others in a program featuring classroom and on-field instruction, breakouts by position group, and on-field scrimmage work.
NFL Player Engagement and the NFL Football Officiating Academy partnered to select the players for the three-day program.
In addition to keynotes from Super Bowl XLVII Referee Jerome Boger and NFL Vice President of Officiating Dean Blandino, instructors include current and former officials and officiating supervisors at all levels, including previous Super Bowl referees Scott Green and Terry Mc Aulay. More than 10 NFL officials as well as officials from the CFL, Arena League and college football have participated at the Tom Beard officiating camps and clinics.
“We are excited to continue providing opportunities for former players to explore post-playing careers,” said Troy Vincent, Senior Vice President of NFL Player Engagement. “Officiating is a natural extension for players who have an interest in staying close to the game.”
