ST. PAUL -- Geno Parrish, who played for the St. Cloud State Huskies from 1996-2000, is the founder and president of Four Star Hockey .

Growing up in Bloomington, Minn., Geno Parrish talks about how, despite beginning high school at Bloomington Jefferson, he never played for the Jaguars during a stretch when they won three straight state titles. Parrish talks about the reasons why he had to transfer to Academy of Holy Angels.
