It is fortunate he only throws flags and does not get more creative in punishing college football wrong-doers.
Christian Watson, a jacked official who looks more like a linebacker, went viral Friday night while calling penalties during Utah State’s 48-24 win over North Dakota.
Watson, who is in his early 30s, also officiates college basketball and baseball games. He has been called the “Bo Jackson of referees” for his sports flexibility rather than stature.
The San Antonio, Texas native told the Crown Refs Podcast that he joined the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference as a crew chief for football in 2016. A year later, he joined the Big 12.
If he needs another job, gyms are probably interested.
