Former NFL Referee Walt Coleman, of the Coleman Dairy family, spoke at the recent Rotary meeting and will be the featured speaker at the upcoming Chamber Banquet. Coleman retired recently at the end of his 30th season. Only six officials in NFL history have done this.
Coleman, when questioned, said the classiest players he has worked with were Barry Sanders, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. He did say that he has mainly worked with quarterbacks which is why two of his three are quarterbacks.
His son works as a line judge for the NFL.
