Eddie Lee Ivery was like a one-man Army and the Air Force could not stop him in 1978. Neither could Bill Parcells, ice, snow or a howling wind.
The Georgia Tech star running back set an NCAA record at the time for rushing yards in a game by piling up 356 yards against Parcells-coached Air Force in the Jackets’ 42-21 win in frigid Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Ivery was one of Tech’s greatest players ever. His statistics were astounding for that era: 3,517 rushing yards in college and 2,933 rushing yards plus 1,612 receiving yards in the NFL.
