I gained a great deal of lacrosse rule knowledge from working with Dr. Bill Gallmann over the past three years; more importantly I learned some great life lessons from him as well. I can’t think of a man that I have met that is more selfless than Dr. Gallmann; I have the utmost respect for him. I don’t think he will ever truly know how appreciative I am for everything that he has done for me and the Lacrosse Officials of Louisiana. At the conclusion of our awards banquet, Dr. Bill Gallmann announced his retirement from lacrosse officiating after nearly 30 years of service. It has been a privilege of mine to have officiated with him, as well as worked along side of him as LOLA board members. I will certainly miss him. Thank you Dr. Bill and enjoy your retirement!
