Larry had an outstanding career as an active basketball official that spanned 35 years at both the high school and collegiate levels. At the college level, he worked the ECAC, Ivy League, Big East and the former Yankee Conference. At the high school level, he worked nearly every major conference in Northeastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire and presided over numerous MIAA and Tech Tourney championships at the old Boston Garden.
