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.
