Local Guy Ric Hinkamper on ESPN Tonight
We are in the midst of multiple college football bowl games for the next few weeks. There will be plenty of games to watch on TV including tonight’s Meineke Car Care Bowl in Texas where Minnesota will be playing Texas Tech. The game can be seen on ESPN at 8pm CST tonight.
I will have the game on TV but will not be watching the players. Instead I will watch the Line Judge. That’s right, the Line Judge because he happens to be Quincy native Ric Hinkamper. He’s been on ESPN before officiating games and is an up an coming official in the football ranks.
I have always watched the game as I see it but when you know one of the officials you tend to watch for him instead of the players. It’s always fun to watch a national event especially when you know someone is a part of it.
Congratulations Ric. Upon further review, I’ll be watching tonight.
