About Annice Canady

Annice Canady was the first female football referee to officiate a NCAA game in 2000. She is revered as a trailblazer, opening the door for other women. Annice is a powder keg. She doesn’t shy away from reporting harsh realities. This strong attitude immediately hooks the audience. She reveals what it was like to be the “first” on the field from coaches, fans, and her male counterparts throughout her career as she reflects on the challenges of being the only woman on the field. After several decades refereeing, she transitioned to the NFL as an officiating scout, recruiting talent into their development pool. Learn more about Canady in the documentary, Her Turf, the untold story of three female referees. www.herturf.com
