Quincy Native Ric Hinkamper to Officiate on ESPN Tonight
If you have had your fill of election news you may want to sit down in front of the TV and watch the football officials on ESPN’s broadcast of the Bowling Green-Ohio University Football game. That’s right, the officials as one of our own will be in a striped shirt tonight.
Ric Hinkamper of Quincy will be working the game as the linesman for the game in Ohio. ESPN 2 will be broadcasting the game beginning at 7pm CST. Ric has done many games before on TV including one at Ohio State in front of 105-thousand fans. That had to be quite a thrill for the former QND graduate who was basically told he wasn’t good enough to officiate an IHSA State Championship game. Guess that goes to show you never give up on your dreams.
For Ric it was high school to start, on to collegiate games and who knows maybe the NFL is in his future. I’ll be watching tonight on ESPN2
