Kukla's Korner Hockey

Battling For 47 Years

from Neal E. Boudette of the Wall Street Journal,

On New Year’s Eve in 1962, Jack Parker and Jerry York lined up against each other in a high-school ice-hockey game—and started a rivalry that has become one of the most extraordinary in college sports.

After high school, Mr. Parker played at Boston University and Mr. York at Boston College. Mr. Parker later became the coach at BU, and Mr. York at BC.

Now, after nearly half a century of going toe-to-toe, each man’s success is unexcelled—and they are still fierce competitors. Mr. York has accumulated more wins—827—than any other active college coach. Mr. Parker is only seven wins behind him.
