The DFOA is dedicated to providing members with training and education on rules, mechanics, and the mental aspects of football officiating.  By bringing officials in, building them up, and sending them out, the Denver area will continue to be Colorado's premier officiating association.

Some of our current members are active in NCAA Division I & Division II football conferences such as Pac 12, Big 12, Mountain West, WAC, SWAC, Big Sky, Southland and RMAC with several members getting the opportunity to work bowl and playoff games. We also have been extremely fortunate to have been the starting grounds for some current and former NFL officials:

Members currently in the NFL:


  • Kent Payne (Super Bowl XLV)
  • Terrence Miles (Super Bowl XLIX)

Former NFL Members:

  • Jim Saracino (Super Bowl XLI)
  • Tom Fincken (Super Bowls XXIX, XXXII, XXXIV)
  • Ben Dreith (Super Bowls VIII, XV)
  • Pat Haggerty (Super Bowls XII, XVI, XIX)
