*Article originally published on

There are six new names on the officiating roster. Senior vice president Al Riveron announced Wednesday that the league has hired six new officials who will work the upcoming 2019 season. The new hires are Dave Hawkshaw, Patrick Holt, Nate Jones, Terry Killens, Jimmy Russell, and Tripp Sutter. All six men participated in the NFL Officiating Development Program.

Hawkshaw most recently worked as a side judge in the Canadian Football League since 2005, and is now the fifth active NFL official with experience officiating in the CFL, joining Bill Vinovich, Gary Cavaletto, Tony Michalek, and Boris Cheek, who all worked when the CFL played games in the U.S. (This appears to be the first NFL official hired directly from the CFL.) Hawkshaw has worked in all three preseasons of the NFL-CFL officiating partnership as a deep wing official on NFL crews. He was the side judge for the 2017 Grey Cup.
