FSU Campus Recreation is proud to recognize Nicole Rilo, a member of our IM Sports staff, for being selected as an All-American Official at the NIRSA National Flag Football Championships in early January. Nicole is only the 14th female official to receive this honor at the national level. At FSU, she is the fifth student and first female to receive the honor in Intramural Sports history.
She was selected as an All-American Official from a group of 60 other officials at the national tournament. These 60 officials are regarded as the top officials from across the nation. Many had previously received regional recognition at smaller tournaments. Nicole earned her bid to officiate at the national tournament after being selected as an All-Tournament Official at the Battle of the Bluegrass NIRSA Flag Football Regional at Western Kentucky in November.
In addition to these accolades, Nicole is also a Student Director for Intramural Sports and the Chair for the Intramural Softball Committee. She has accomplished all of this while pursuing two degrees in Sport Management and Accounting. She is only a junior at FSU, and we are excited to see how Nicole finishes her time at FSU and in Campus Recreation! Congratulations Nicole!
