Gail O. Rolls was a pioneer who single-handedly spearheaded the awareness of the importance for and necessity of having athletic trainers on duty at every high school contest. She volunteered for countless hours, working Governor Thomas Johnson High School’s fall, winter, and spring programs. She found time to keep statistics showing the importance of and need for athletic trainers at sporting events in Frederick County. She was instrumental in getting the Board of Education to offer a sports medicine course for coaches, teachers, and others. Her efforts have ensured the presence of paid athletic trainers at every county high school event. Athletics owe this tireless professional a debt of gratitude.
