What is the role of the swing official? This season it is #81 umpire Roy Ellison (which is interesting because there were two new umpires hired, #121 Paul King and #11 Fred Bryan). How is it decided who the official is? Is it the one with the worst grade scores from the previous season? And, do they simply fill in for other umpires who can't work a particularly week (such as last night, in place of #115 Tony Michalek on Gene Steratore's crew)?

Bullseye, it is actually the opposite. It is the ref who graded #1 overall last year and made the super bowl.

Interesting. I'm just curious what the perk is of having this job if you're not sure whether you'll be working every week, and how it affects your pay as well.

You are working, just not always on the field, so most of the time you get to enjoy the game more. I believe the pay is the same, I know it is for us here in WA's high schools.

In what other roles? Supervisory? Sideline?

No, just ready to step in if someone gets hurt and can't continue. We're dressed and ready, attend the pre-games and such, but we're essentially just backup in case we're needed, which does happen esp. with some of our older more out-of-shape officials.
