Hall of Fame Inductee - Larry York
Even a very young age Larry York knew that seeing was believing---and if
you could envision the task you could accomplish it. York did more than
just accomplish-he was an outstanding 2-way player for Head Coach Clell
Wade in the early 1960s-leading the team in tackles and assists his
senior year. York then attended the University of Missouri, graduating
in 1968 with a B.S. in Education. Choosing to stay close to athletics
York taught and coached at both Shawnee Mission and Sedalia in the early
1970s before moving to Jefferson City, Missouri. It was there York
found a home. Teaching in the school's mathematics department by day and
coaching by night, York worked his way up the ladder. He served as
Head Track Coach, Cross Country Coach, Intramural Director and later as
Director of Athletics at the 9th Grade, Middle School and High School
level. York served the Jefferson City Public School System for a total
of 29 years. York and his wife Rebecca have 2 sons and 3 grandchildren.
They reside in Jefferson City, Missouri.
