NEW ORLEANS — The NFL has chosen its seven-man officiating crew for Sunday's Super Bowl between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers.
Jerome Boger will be the referee in his first Super Bowl assignment. He has been an NFL official for nine years, and has worked four divisional playoff games.
The other officials announced Wednesday are Darrell Jenkins (umpire), Steve Stelljes (head linesman), Byron Boston (line judge), Craig Wrolstad (field judge), Joe Larrew (side judge) and Dino Paganelli (back judge).
Boger entered the league as a line judge in 2004, and was promoted to referee in 2006.
