I spent most of my free time on Saturday up in Kaycee, watching the hometown Buckaroos play the Hulett Red Devils in what turned out to be a pretty fantastic game of six-man football.

Oh, and I brought my camera, too.

I uploaded my photos to my Flickr account and then added them to the Wyoming-football.com group pool. The cool thing about that group is that it’s open to the public, and when you add photos to the pool, they become part of the slideshow that now graces this site’s front page.

So next time you take some photos at a game, please feel free to upload them to the Flickr group! I am excited to see what our shutterbugs across the state can come up with.

Below, I’ve added one of my favorite photos from Saturday: Hulett senior Austin Snook taking control of the huddle.

No more excuses — you have no reason not to be plugged in for the 2011 high school football season here in the Equality State.

After all, wyoming-football.com is on Facebook.

And on Twitter.

And we have our own Flickr album where you can upload photos you take at games. (Maybe you noticed the new slide show feature on the front of this site’s home page, where your photos can be seen and shared.)

This site is a lot more fun if you’re as involved as you can be. So like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and add some photos to our group on Twitter. Oh, and comment on this blog!


Are you getting everything you can out of your Wyoming high school football season? Well, you could be getting more if you take advantage of everything we offer here…

That includes liking wyoming-football.com on Facebook. There are more posts, more thoughts and more mad props on the wyoming-football.com Facebook feed. So check it out.

It also includes both joining and adding to the Flickr photo gallery for Wyoming high school football. To steal a line from Kelly Kapoor, you go online, you go “click, click, click.” Then you can browse photos (with or without a Flickr account) and add your own to the collection, too (with a Flickr account; a Yahoo! account does the job, as well).

Obviously, you know about the blog, so be sure to keep checking here througout the season for news, opinion, links, conversation, interpretation, motivation, conflagration, obfustication and pictures of dogs spinning plates on their paws.

Of course, the best way to improve the experience is to spread the link to this site around to your friends. Remember, this site has remained (and hopefully will remain) advertisement-free. I do this because I love Wyoming high school football and I get a kick out of watching every game, every week and every season unfold. Over the course of three years, I’ve made a grand total of about $40 from my pleas for donations to keep the site going (shameless plug: e-mail me at pschmiedt@yahoo.com to set up a donation and keep the site ad-free; any donations that go above the maintenance of the site, about $100 a year, go to charity). I ain’t gettin’ rich anytime soon with this Web site — and that’s the point. The minute this becomes a business is the minute it stops being fun…. but help paying for server space is definitely appreciated. And even though I can count all of you on one hand, thanks to those who have already donated! It is sincerely appreciated.

As always, I’m open to any ideas you might have. Feel free to post them here or shoot me an e-mail. Knowing people care about what I write and what I research helps keep me motivated.


Wyoming-football.com now has its own group on Flickr. All you have to do is upload your Wyoming high school photos to your Flickr account, join the group, then post the photos in the group pool. I’ve added a few of my own to get the album going, but I don’t want to be the only one uploading photos….

The group is here. Check it out and join into it. Old and new photos, action or stills, sideline shots and touchdowns are all welcome!
