It was a special moment Friday night when Eugene Gill walked on to the football field that had become a second home for the past two decades. The long time Shamrock booster, who started out as a member of the sideline chain crew before becoming the Shamrocks equipment manager in 1999, had been forced to give up his position with the Shamrocks do to poor health. Near the end of half time Friday night, Gilly walked back onto the field and was greeted with a long and enthusiastic standing ovation from the Shamrock faithful who let Gilly know how much his service was appreciated.
