A Brandon woman could make sports history.

Sarah Thomas is attempting to become the first full-time female official in the NFL.

The mother of three is auditioning to become an NFL line judge.

She made history seven years ago by being the first female official at the NCAA Division 1 level by officiating games in Conference USA.

Sarah Thomas was part of the referee crew when the Saints played the Raiders in a preseason game Friday.
