College Hockey:
Jerry York as SI's Sportsman of the Year?

College hockey is not typically the sport first thought of when selecting Sports Illustrated’s “Sportsman of the Year” award. But as part of a series of article that the magazine is writing, SI’s Kevin Armstrong picked Boston College head coach Jerry York as his choice for the esteemed award.

Whether you agree with Armstrong or not, or are or are not a Jerry York lover, this is an incredibly well-written piece that puts a lot of perspective around not only York as a human being but also around the role college hockey players can often play in the community.

I encourage everyone to take a look.
