Thanks to some help from former Laramie player Blake Newman, I recently added the Class AA all-state team for 1971. I appreciate the help, Blake!

The all-state listings I have are nearly complete back to 1920, but I can still use some help. If you have a team I am missing, please email it to me at I am still searching for the following teams:

1994, Class 1A 9-man
1970, Class AA and Class B
1969, Class B
1966, 1967, 1968, all classes
1965, Class A and Class B
1963, Class B
1958, all classes
1957, Class B
1949, 1950, 1951, 1952, 1953, 1954, all classes
1939, all classes
1936, all classes
1932, 1933, all classes
1929, all classes
1926, all classes


I have received several emails in the past couple weeks asking about my new book, “A Century of Fridays,” which covers high school football in Wyoming from the first game in 1894 to the 2011 state championships last November.

The book, unfortunately, will not be available in time for Christmas. You CAN still give the book for Christmas by having your gift receiver proceed to this page; then, when the book comes out, you can hook them up for realsies.

The book is in the final stages of production and should be available in roughly 6-8 weeks. I’m doing everything I can to keep the price as low as possible. Mostly, that means chopping my share of the profits down to basically nothing. I’m trying to keep the actual price of the book as close to the cost of the production as I can.

I have several excuses as to why the book was not ready before now, but they’re all excuses. The bottom line is that the book is still coming out, just about a month or two later than I would have hoped, and if your friends are really good friends they’ll understand why you’re giving them a web page for Christmas and not a book.



A Century of Fridays cover. Book by Patrick Schmiedt.

Two quick updates:

I noted that Lyman’s head coach from 1973 to 1975 was Rick Lambson, not Brad Jacobson as previously noted. Thanks to current Lyman coach Ted Holmstrom for the help!

I also noted the Oct. 11, 1999, between Lusk and Guernsey-Sunrise was an 85-0 Lusk victory, not 75-0. Thanks to Ryan Rapp and Cory Griffith for their help on this one!
