Jeff Penney

President (2023)
Jeff resides on a small horse property in Parker, with his wife of 25 years, and father of two kids; Tyler and Kelly. He started officiating youth football in 1985, in East Texas. He moved quickly into varsity level football the following year, and thereafter for 13 years, before moving to Colorado.Raising kids and travel with work kept Jeff out of officiating football, until 2012 – when he joined the DFOA. His first Varsity game assignment, was at the R position. “I realized quickly after being out of football officiating, how much I really missed it.” Thankfully, kids sports filled the void – watching his son’s high school football team play at a chance to win the 5A Championship, and his daughter’s track & field team winning the girls 5A Championship was both very rewarding.Jeff is Vice President of an automotive parts distributor, with 7 locations across the US. Hobbies include; horseback riding, golf, and racquetball. 2019 marks his first year as Crew Chief, and working the R position. 2018 was very rewarding, working the 5A Championship Game – at the Back Judge position.There have been many officials over the years help shape my ability to officiate football, and some of them are in the DFOA today – it’s a great organization! I am very grateful for this opportunity to serve the members of the DFOA in this role. My dedication and effort will be nothing short of 100%, to ensure a healthy and growing DFOA going forward.
