The Passing of Brian "Lee" Rogers
It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the death of Lee Rodgers.  

Lee passed away suddenly May 19th, 2020 with complications from a rare form of blood cancer.  

Lee was a great official.  He was a great mentor to many. Lee made officiating fun and is the reason that so many got into the role of officiating. He was a joy to be around and we know many of you would agree with that.  Most importantly he was a tremendous person and was a great friend to many of us and will truly be missed. 

We extend our condolences to Steven and the rest of the family.  

We lost a legend. RIP LeeRoy
