Northwestern athletics director Jimmy Wallace said the best weekend of the year is the first Friday in November when high school football teams in Class AAAA play rival games.
Wallace should know.He was an assistant coach at York from 1972-1974 and saw that rivalry up close.He was involved with the rivalry between Great Falls and Lewisville when he was the Lions' head coach from 1981-1986.
In 1987, Wallace left Lewisville for Northwestern, and became part of one of the state's biggest rivalries, the Trojans' battle against Rock Hill.
Wallace said his days at York prepared him for what he'd face at Northwestern.
Wallace said coaching at York was one of the most memorable times of his life.It's where he started his career out of college and he learned from a legend, former York coach Jimmy "Mac" Wallace.
Wallace was head coach at Northwestern for 18 years.Wallace said long ago he and former Rock Hill Bearcats coach Jim Ringer met and decided that the two schools should compliment each other.
The rivalry has always been intense, but Wallace said he can never remember any problems on the field.
Wallace has been away from coaching two seasons, and said he's finally able to sleep at night.
"At 57 years old, it helps you avoid a heart attack not to be coaching in this game," he said.

Northwestern High School football coach Jimmy "Moose" Wallace told The Herald recently a day didn't pass without him thinking about hanging it up after 38 years of coaching.
Wallace, who turns 61 in May, won't be coaching season No. 39. He met with Northwestern principal James Blake and school athletics director Bill Warren before lunch Friday and submitted his resignation as head football coach, effective immediately.
Wallace has been a head football coach for 28 years - 22 of those at Northwestern, the other six at Lewisville High School in Chester County, where he won one state championship.
The Trojans have been a Class AAAA powerhouse under Wallace, who just completed 24 straight seasons of at least 10 victories. In December, Wallace led Northwestern to its third state championship in eight tries on his watch, winning the Class AAAA Division II title. The team's 15-0 record marked the Trojans' first undefeated season in varsity football.
"Over his career, (Wallace) built Northwestern into a notable football power, well respected around the state," Warren said.
Coach Wallace can never be replaced," Warren said.
"We had a special group of kids to work with this season," Wallace told The Herald several weeks ago.
On Friday afternoon, Wallace met with nearly 200 players to notify them of his decision. He challenged them to continue to strive both in the classroom and on the field. The meeting included his right-hand man, William "Q-Rock" Curreton, who has worked for Wallace the last 18 years.
"Coach Wallace has been like a daddy to me ... been good to me," Curreton said.
Wallace is a member of the York County Sports Hall of Fame and in July will be inducted into the S.C. Athletic Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
He graduated from Rock Hill High School, where he was a standout offensive lineman and was voted "Mr. Bearcat" by his senior classmates in 1968. Wallace graduated from Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C.
Wallace was an assistant coach at York and Rock Hill before becoming Lewisville's head coach in 1981, where he went 15-0 and won the Class A state championship in 1986 before moving to Northwestern.
"Coach Wallace is going to be missed by the Northwestern family," Warren said.
Wallace will continue his duties as assistant athletic director and weightlifting instructor at Northwestern through the end of his contract, which expires at the end of June.
