Most football fans are familiar with Ed Hochuli, the NFL referee with biceps that rival a pro wrestler's. But Hochuli isn't the only referee who defeintely lifts, bro.
Meet Mike Defee, the Big 12 referee who officiated the College Football Playoff national championship game and he is seriously jacked. (We even wonder if the game was so long -- over four hours -- because Defee wanted to show off his guns by calling all those reviews.)
In fact, Defee is so built that even the ESPN broadcasters were having fun speculating whether he was wearing a "smedium" shirt to show off his arms.

If this dude put on some shoulder pads and a jersey, we wouldn't have any idea he isn't a football player. Now, if he could only strongarm the clock into moving a little faster next time.
