Saturday's game between Penn State and Wisconsin will mark the end of the 2013 regular season for both teams. However, the game will also mark the final regular season game in the career of football official Bill LeMonnier, who has given 20 years of service to the Big Ten's officiating program. During his career, LeMonnier has put together an impressive list of accomplishments and has become one of the most respected and recognizable football officials in America. In 2011, LeMonnier was selected as the referee for the inaugural Big Ten Football Championship Game, and was also honored by the National Football Foundation with the organization's Outstanding Contributions to Amateur Football Award. He has worked 15 postseason bowl games, including the 2010 BCS National Championship Game. Earlier this year, LeMonnier was recognized by the National Association of Sports Officials with the "Gold Whistle Award." The Big Ten thanks Bill LeMonnier for his 20 years of dedicated service to the sport of football and the conference's officiating program.
