Terry Killens becomes the first Super Bowl player-officiator.

He will be the first person in the history of football to both play in a Super Bowl and serve as an official in the Super Bowl.

Terry Killens will earn a rare distinction in the history of football when he goes on the field as the umpire at Super Bowl LVIII.

It was revealed today by the National Football League that Killens will be a member of the officiating crew for Super Bowl LVIII.

 Killens is now serving as an official for the National Football League for the sixth season, and this is his first assignment to the Super Bowl.

However, this is not Killens' first time competing in the Super Bowl; in fact, he was a member of the Titans team that was defeated by the Rams in Super Bowl XXXIV. 

 Killens, who was a reserve linebacker, committed one tackle throughout the game, and it was on special teams.

Killens, who is now 49 years old, was selected by the Houston Oilers in the third round in 1996 after graduating from Penn State. He remained with the Oilers/Titans until the year 2000, after which he proceeded to play for the 49ers for two seasons and the Seahawks for one season. 

His previous experience includes working at the collegiate level in the American Athletic Conference (AAC) and at the professional level in the Alliance of American Football (AAF).
