"No truer words were spoken when you talk about Jack," said Eric Delabar, an All-American goalkeeper who graduated from QU in 1979 who later spent 19 seasons as the head women's soccer coach at Maryville University. "He was a great coach, a legendary soccer coach, but he cared about his players even more."
