Just a short note to let you know that I’ve updated the state champions listing to reflect Glenrock’s 1960 championship. I have no explanation for why Glenrock wasn’t listed in the table, but here’s my excuse:
For those of you that have followed this site for a long time (and, hey, let’s be honest, that group includes one person — me), I had the state champions listed on my old Geocities site back in 1999. I posted the list after the list ran in the Casper Star-Tribune, sometime either before or after the title games.
Using my self-taught HTML skills, I posted the list on my personal Web site (hence the sort of weird filename that has carried over ever since, wyofootball.html). I’m guessing the original list I used didn’t have Glenrock’s 1960 title listed on it. And my guess is that the list the Star-Tribune used to create ITS list sometime before 1999 was flawed, too.
But, as part of a larger project I’m working on (watch for it this fall), I caught the omission. The table has since been updated.
Oddly enough, Glenrock’s 1960 title was the last sub-11-man title won in Wyoming until Hanna won the first 9-man title in 1989.
Anyway, I got sidetracked tonight by this, and I don’t know if anyone else cares, but I thought it was interesting….
