Officials selected for Super Bowl 45


DALLAS (AP) -- The NFL has selected Walt Anderson to referee the Super Bowl, handing the 15-year veteran official his second assignment in the league's championship game.

Anderson was a line judge at the 2001 Super Bowl between Baltimore and the New York Giants.

The other members of the officiating crew announced Thursday are umpire Chad Brown, head linesman Kent Payne, line judge John Hussey, field judge Doug Rosenbaum, side judge Mike Weatherford and back judge Scott Helverson.

The NFL awards spots in the Super Bowl to officials with at least five years experience who grade out the best over the season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers play the Green Bay Packers in Sunday's Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium.
