Hike father, hike son: Rick & Jerry Neuheisel settle the score

Aug 21, 2014

For nearly 35 years, Rick Neuheisel has solidified his place as one of the preeminent figures of the Pac-12 Conference. From his gunslinging days as a UCLA quarterback, to his memorable ride on the coaching carousel, to his career as a future hall-of-fame broadcaster, there's no denying our man Rick has moseyed around the block and then some. 

But hold your horses, partner. There's a new Neuheisel in the wild, wild Westwood, and he's got something to prove. 

Rick's son, Jerry, is a redshirt sophomore QB for the Bruins (and might we add that he bears a shockingly uncanny resemblance to his father). Thursday at practice, Rick and Jerry squared off in an old fashioned father-son duel for all the marbles. Will Jerry prevail as the new sheriff in town, or is Rick still riding high in the saddle?
