Tim Taylor became a Black Hawk during the autumn of 1963, returned to Boston in 1969, and left a legacy you can see every time a Waterloo youth hockey player takes his first step onto the ice.
Taylor will long be remembered for a career which included parts of four decades as an NCAA head coach or assistant, as well as helping to lead two Olympic squads and other service to USA Hockey. Before that and while he was still a senior player in the United States Hockey League, the former Harvard captain was a key figure in a city hockey program which has evolved into the Waterloo Youth Hockey Association of today.
The Black Hawks and Mike Molstead Motors in Charles City will recognize the resounding heritage of Taylor’s efforts as a youth hockey coach, as well as those who make a positive impact on the Cedar Valley today, with a new program announced earlier this season: Tim Taylor Legacy Seats, presented by Mike Molstead Motors.
Anyone from northeast Iowa is invited to nominate a person – who embodies the spirit of Tim Taylor by making the community better – to sit in the Tim Taylor Legacy Seats during a 2016/17 Waterloo Black Hawks home game.
