Midland native Bill Vinovich will be donning the white hat in front of a global audience of millions as he will be the head referee Sunday night at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, as the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs battle the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 58.
Vinovich, who was born in Rochester in 1960, will be working in his fifth Super Bowl overall and third as main referee. Coincidentally, his last appearance as the head officer for the NFL’s biggest game was for Super Bowl 54 back in 2020, also between the Chiefs and 49ers.
When he is not making holding calls in the heat of the moment, Vinovich works as a certified public accountant in California.
