Last weekend at the Oklahoma Officials Conference in Oklahoma City, Rowley was given a certificate for his 40 years of being on the field every Friday night.
“I guess the first thing I thought of was that it's hard to believe that I've been calling games for that period of time,” Rowley said. “It's just gone by so rapidly.”
