A reader in attendance for a seventh-grade football matchup between Bethany Middle School and Casady in Bethany, Oklahoma reports the referee for tonight's middle school game is none other than Kevin Akin, who served Sunday as head linesman for the Browns-Eagles game and will be working the Broncos-Falcons Monday night game this coming week. That's him above patrolling the backfield, according to our source. Perhaps he took the job because he wanted to see some competent football as opposed to the disaster he officiated on Sunday, who knows?

Akin's claim to fame before joining the scab ranks is as a Division II referee, though it seems he dips down into, say, lower levels of competition on occasion.
