  1. Greg Gulick says:

    I am sorry for your loss. Lou and I were good friends during our four years at BRHS and I will cherish our time playing football for coach Pacillio. Many laughs and lots of memories while we all were suffering through the practices. I vividly remember the game where Lou tore up his knee and ended his career. He was a great player and I’ll remember him in my prayers and thoughts.
