Bill Vinovich

FILE – In this Dec. 16, 2012, file photo, NFL referee Bill Vinovich gestures during an NFL football game between the Cleveland Browns and the Washington Redskins in Cleveland. One momen Vinovich was lifting weights to stay in shape for the NFL season, the next he was on a hospital bed overhearing doctors say the next 48 hours would determine if he would live. Eleven days of intensive care followed, then weeks of home rest, months of working himself back into shape. Three years later, he will be the referee at Sunday’s Super Bowl in Arizona.
