“Next season will probably be my best because pressure of getting to Super Bowl is not there,” said Mello.
“I honestly believe that’s how I got there this year. I didn’t worry about it. I just keep working and enjoying the game. My attitude was, ‘Whatever happens, happens.’”
An official that worked the Super Bowl with Mello, Dave Wyant, retired after the game.
He had spent 23 years trying to get to the Super Bowl and he finally did.
“I’m very lucky. I will never take it for granted,” said Mello.
“It was one of the best experiences of my life. Maybe I’ll be lucky enough to do it again. Either way, I’ll never forget the experience I shared with my family.”
