In Memory of Rolly Magallanes

We are sad to inform you of the sudden and unexpected passing of Rolly Magallanes on October 25, 2018.   What was supposed to be an exciting playoff game between Wootton High School and Richard Montgomery High School turned tragic as Rolly suffered cardiac arrest doing what he loved most.  As a community, we’ve lost a dedicated referee, trainer, coach, and soccer enthusiast.  Rolly coached  countless children in our soccer community and ref’d in Montgomery County for sixteen years.  Rolly’s love of soccer and coaching was evident as soon as you spoke to him.  He was a consummate professional, always encouraging and pushing his athletes to reach their highest potential.  He was one of a kind and will be missed by the many people he inspired both on and off the field.

Rolly was the Head Coach of the Maryland State U12 Boys ODP.  He served as an assistant coach for the Maryland State U12 Boys ODP for two years and participated as a Maryland State ODP Player Assessor for 8 years. Rolly was involved with soccer as a player himself, coaching club teams, high school and at the collegiate level for 25 years.  He was a USSF soccer trained official for the past 16 years and Vice President of Metropolitan Washington Soccer Referee Association.

We are reaching out to all good hearted fellow friends for extending financial support to his family in this time of sorrow. Please do not hesitate to contribute to this fund and feel free to share it with your friends and family. We thank you a lot for your kindness and support.
