The Knights Lacrosse Team celebrated more than a home game against Round Rock foe, Stony Point High School Friday night.  The man who led them through the 2006 season and was subsequently deployed to Iraq in command of a cavalry troop was welcomed home.  Despite wounds from a grenade blast and fragments, Captain John Gilliam, U.S. Army, looked right at home among his players and their families and promised to return to the Harker Heights program as soon as he can lead his players in wind sprints. A soldier who leads by example and holds the Purple Heart Medal,  John Gilliam has played an integral role in bringing families in the Fort Hood community to the game of lacrosse and in teaching his players lessons that apply both on an off the playing field.
