All-state listings are posted on the all-state page.

Powell’s Tony Lujan, Garrett Lynch and Brendan Phister; Cokeville’s Cody Nate; Southeast’s Wyatt Somsen and Colton Stees; and Midwest’s Cameron Ray were all named to the all-state team for the third time.

Repeat selections included Cheyenne East’s Tevis Bartlett, Cameron Johnson and Eric Williams; Gillette’s Cody Kelley, Austin Fort and Billy Williams; Natrona’s Taven Bryan and Logan Wilson; Cody’s Carter Myers, Ryan Nieters and Brandon Hinze; Douglas’ Logan Barker; Powell’s Hayden Cragoe, Cory Heny and Riley Stringer; Star Valley’s Trace Haderlie and Sam Gertsch; Big Horn’s Connor McCafferty; Burns’ Travis Romsa; Glenrock’s Devon Parkinson; Greybull’s Calder Forcella; Kemmerer’s Garrett Julian; Mountain View’s Cade Covington, Austin Houskeeper and Trystin Walker; Newcastle’s Merritt Crabtree; Wheatland’s Critter Ruwart and Jace Loyd; Burlington’s Preston Wardell; Cokeville’s Brock Teichert, Jonathan Fiscus and Braxton Delgado; Lingle’s Lane Hageman and Wyatt Hageman; Lusk’s Matt VandeBossche, Derick VandeBossche, Zane Hladky and Hunter Dockery; Riverside’s Tucker McKim; Rocky Mountain’s Joey Jewell; Southeast’s Travis Jinks; Upton-Sundance’s Jett Materi; Dubois’ Sterling Baker and Austin Tharp; Hulett’s Story Penning; Meeteetse’s Seth Bennett; and Midwest’s Tucker Even. Cokeville’s Jace Petersen and Meeteetse’s Jasper Smith were named all-state for the second time after both being named in 2011.

Twelve players — Bartlett, Wilson, Myers, Stringer, Forcella, Covington, Houskeeper, Derick VandeBossche, Hladky, McKim, Petersen and Materi — could become three-time selections in 2014. All 12 are juniors this year. (Edit: Forgot Petersen on the first version.)

After one season, Tom Waring has resigned as the head coach at Rawlins, the Rawlins Daily Times reported.

Waring went 1-7 in his one season with the Outlaws. Before 2013, Waring was head coach at Hanna for four seasons.

A replacement hasn’t yet been named.


Greybull coach Justin Bernhardt has resigned after two years leading the Buffaloes, the Greybull Standard reported.

Bernhardt was Greybull’s coach for two years and compiled a 7-11 record.

No replacement has been named.

All of the 2013 updates — minus the updates I can’t make yet, like all-state and Super 25 listings — have been made on the site. All team pages and record pages have been updated. Browse around the site and if you see anything I missed or that I typed in wrong, let me know.

I’m planning some big changes to the site within the next few months. Keep checking back to see the latest.

And, my final picks record for 2013:

Last week: 3-2 (60 percent). This season: 248-54 (82 percent). Nine-year total: 2,100-547 (79 percent).


We’ve waited all year for this weekend. So let’s get right to it:

Class 2A
Mountain View (2W, 8-3) vs. Big Horn (2E, 9-1)

Series record: First meeting.
Last meeting: First meeting.
State championships: Mountain View, 3. … Big Horn, 3.
Title game appearances: This is the ninth title game appearance for Mountain View. … This is the 12th title game appearance for Big Horn.
Title game record: Mountain View, 3-5. … Big Horn, 3-8.
How they got here: Mountain View made it to Laramie with a pair of eight-point playoff victories, beating Newcastle 20-12 in the quarterfinals and Thermopolis 14-6 in the semifinals. … Big Horn beat Lyman 52-14 and Lovell 28-19 to reach the title game.
The case for Mountain View: The Buffalos might have more individual talent than any 2A team in the state. And it’s young talent at that. Quarterback Austin Houskeeper, leading rusher Cade Covington and leading receiver Caleb Flake are all juniors. Mountain View is stacked for a title run next year; this year’s success is a not-so-unexpected result of having the talent, and now the confidence, to compete with the best.
The case for Big Horn: Few teams possess the offensive balance and the defensive opportunism the Rams do. Big Horn leads Class 2A in offensive yards per game (393.1) and turnover margin (plus-17), two important statistics in a classification of football that turns just as much on yards as it does on opportunism and consistency. The ability of Rams quarterback Connor McCafferty to take care of the ball (28 touchdowns, only two interceptions) has helped the Rams find their rhythm, especially in the playoffs.
The pick: At the beginning of the season, I picked Mountain View to beat Big Horn 12-8 in the title game. That seems like so long ago, and, in retrospect, it was little more than a lucky guess. Class 2A had more parity than any other classification in the state, and that’s shown in the playoffs. However, Big Horn has been the more consistent, more dominant team the past few weeks, and the Rams will ride that consistency to the championship. Big Horn 24, Mountain View 19.

Class 3A
Powell (1W, 11-0) vs. Douglas (1E, 10-0)
3 p.m. Friday
Series record:
Powell leads 5-2.
Last meeting:
Powell beat Douglas 15-14 in the 3A championship game on Nov. 11, 2011, in Laramie.
State championships:
Powell, 7. … Douglas, 5.
Title game appearances:
This is the eighth title game appearance for Powell. … This is the 12th title game appearance for Douglas. 
Title game record:
Powell, 5-2. … Douglas, 5-6.
How they got here:
Powell was efficient, beating Torrington 48-20 and Cody 26-13 to reach the championship. … Douglas beat Jackson 52-14 and handled Star Valley 32-7 to return to Laramie after a one-year absence.
The case for Powell: The Panthers returned six (!) all-state players from last year’s team, and each one of them has played even better this season — Brendon Phister, Riley Stringer and Anthony Lujan are 1-2-3 for Powell in defensive points, Hayden Cragoe has been a rock at quarterback, Cory Heny leads the team in rushing touchdowns AND interceptions, and Garrett Lynch has chipped in a little bit everywhere. But Powell has also had new stars rise to the top and give the Panthers a formidable, talented look that few teams have ever had at the 3A level. Oh, and Powell has won 26 games in a row. That should count for something.
The case for Douglas: Even with Powell’s success, Douglas may be the most dominant team in 3A this year. Douglas’ closest game this year was 17 points. The Bearcats lead 3A in total offense and they’re just a scant few yards behind Powell in total defense. And even with an offense that has led 3A in passing, Douglas also has 3A’s top leading ground gainer in Logan Barker (1,523 yards).
The pick:
With all due respect to all the other schools in Class 3A, these two teams have been head and shoulders above all the other 3A teams all season long. They both play the same game: balanced offense, dominant line play, physical defense. Their offensive and defensive statistics darn near mirror each other. This championship game should live up to the billing that a game between two undefeated traditional powers brings with it. Think 2011 redux, where one big play late changes everything. Powell 20, Douglas 14

Class 1A six-man
Meeteetse (1W, 10-1) vs. Midwest (1E, 9-1)
10 a.m. Saturday
Series record
Midwest leads 12-6.
Last meeting:
Midwest beat Meeteetse 71-30 on Sept. 8, 2012, in Meeteetse.
State championships:
Meeteetse, 1. … Midwest, 2.
Title game appearances:
This is the third title game appearance for Meeteetse. … This is the sixth title game appearance for Midwest.
Title game record:
Meeteetse, 1-1. … Midwest, 2-3.
How they got here:
Meeteetse was barely challenged in the first two rounds, beating Kaycee 65-14 and Guernsey-Sunrise 64-12. … Midwest thumped Farson 56-6 before rallying for an amazing 64-62 victory over Dubois in the semifinals.
The case for Meeteetse: What has turned the Longhorns from contender to favorite is one thing: balance. In 2012, Seth Bennett was carrying the team; in 2013, Bennett is leading the team. And that’s a huge difference. Although Bennett has still put up big numbers, throwing and passing for more than 1,000 yards apiece, he doesn’t have to do everything anymore. He has help from other talented players like Jasper Smith, Shawn Shepperson, Carter Johnson and Dalton Abarr. The Longhorns have been better, and more successful, for that balance.
The case for Midwest
: The Oilers’ key to success is its depth. That’s how Midwest beat Dubois in the semifinals — when the Rams lost steam in the fourth quarter, the Oilers were still going strong. Cam Ray, Tucker Even and Kacey Gussman have combined to give Midwest a three-pronged (read: deep) attack on both offense and defense. And when they get tired, a supporting group of players can fill in and keep Midwest competitive — a formula that has led the Oilers to an undefeated season in which the only loss was a forfeit. 
The pick:
Every neuron in my brain says Meeteetse is the favorite. And if you were to assign a point spread on this game, the Longhorns would have the advantage. But you can’t ignore what Midwest did last week — specifically, how it won. When you win games like that, you believe you can overcome any deficit. I’ve seen teams make runs like this before. It’s the stuff of destiny. Midwest 58, Meeteetse 54.

Class 1A 11-man
Lusk (1E, 9-0) vs. Cokeville (1W, 9-1)
1 p.m. Saturday
Series record: Cokeville leads 3-0.
Last meeting: Cokeville won 28-7 in a semifinal playoff game on Nov. 4, 2011, in Cokeville.
State championships: Lusk, 5. … Cokeville, 20.
Title game appearances: This is the 13th title game appearance for Lusk. … This is the 26th title game appearance for Cokeville.
Title game record: Lusk, 5-7. … Cokeville, 19-6.
How they got here: Lusk destroyed Riverside 68-0 and then came from behind to beat Lingle 30-21 in the semifinals. … Cokeville ran through both Upton-Sundance (56-0) and Southeast (39-7) to make it here.
The case for Lusk: Defense, defense, defense. Lusk had seven consecutive shutouts at one point this season. If that doesn’t make the case, nothing will. The Tiger defense, led by Derick and Matt VandeBossche, Martin Fitzwater, Zane Hladky and Logan Lamar, has been tough to crack. Don’t forget, it was a late pick-six by Hunter Dockery that sealed Lusk’s victory over Lingle in the semifinals. Stout and opportunistic defense creates better situations for an offense that’s just as efficient but gets overshadowed.
The case for Cokeville: The Panthers have the three Ts going for them: tradition, teamwork and Todd. Coach Todd Dayton and the Panthers are traditional small-school favorites, and they find that success by not relying on any one player. By design, no one player stands out on offense — five players have more than 280 rushing yards this season, but none more than James Teichert’s 801, and five players have more than 100 receiving yards, but none more than Braxton Delgado’s 197. That makes the Panthers tough to stop, because shutting one avenue down opens another one that’s just as reliable.
The pick: Everything points to this being a classic small-school showdown. The Panthers and Tigers have the classification’s top two offenses and top two defenses. They won their respective conferences and haven’t lost a game within the classification. This will be a good one, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Lusk win, but…. Cokeville 22, Lusk 14.

Class 4A
Natrona (4, 8-3) vs. Cheyenne East (3, 9-2)
4 p.m. Saturday
Series record: Natrona leads 39-17.
Last meeting: Cheyenne East won 42-41 in triple overtime on Sept. 6 in Casper.
State championships: Natrona, 16. … Cheyenne East, 3.
Title game appearances: This is the 14th title game appearance for Natrona. … This is the seventh title game appearance for Cheyenne East.
Title game record: Natrona, 9-4. … Cheyenne East, 3-3.
How they got here: Natrona rode defense, beating Kelly Walsh 33-0 and upending previously undefeated Gillette 14-7 to make it to The War. … Cheyenne East eked out tight victories over Cheyenne Central (13-7) and Sheridan (28-27) to reach it to the championship.
The case for Natrona: If you had proposed Natrona’s 2013 season as a movie, no one would have accepted it. Too unrealistic, too unbelievable. Three overtime losses at home? And then the chance to play those same three teams in the playoffs? No way that would happen in real life. Yet here we are, and NC can do just that. The Mustangs have already avenged their OT losses to Kelly Walsh and Gillette; now, only East stands in the way of a Natrona championship and a completed redemption tour. A championship would be an unbelievable end to a beyond-belief season.
The case for Cheyenne East: The Thunderbirds have already beaten Natrona, at Casper no less. They have one of the most dynamic and exciting players in the state in junior quarterback Tevis Bartlett, who’s put up amazing numbers (1,335 rushing yards, 1,441 passing yards). They’ve been to the title game before and they know what it takes to win it. And, as if the orange and black needed this ugly reminder from a couple years back, the Thunderbirds know what it takes to beat the Mustangs in the playoffs. Did we mention that East has already beaten Natrona this year?
The pick: A big-school championship game hasn’t gone to overtime since the epic triple-overtime game between Cody and Laramie in the 1976 Class AA title game. This one might break that streak — and put an impossible end on a surreal season. Natrona 20, Cheyenne East 17, OT.

Last week: 7-3 (70 percent). This season: 245-52 (82 percent).

Each one of the title games is worth watching. So get your butt down to Laramie and do just that. If you can’t (like me), then let’s stay here and chat about it instead.


New classifications and new conference alignments will bring significant changes to the 2014 Wyoming high school football schedule.

The Wyoming High School Activities Association released the 2014 football schedule to schools today at the statewide scheduling meeting in Casper. Class 4A is the only classification where significant changes were not made. Reclassification changed the number of schools in Class 2A, Class 1A 11-man and Class 1A six-man, prompting big overhauls to the schedules in those classifications.

With Tongue River and Moorcroft joining Class 1A 11-man from Class 2A and Saratoga and Wyoming Indian joining 1A 11-man from six-man, the most significant changes came at the Class 1A 11-man level. With an unbalanced conference alignment of seven teams in the East Conference at eight in the West, an East Conference team has a bye each week of the conference season. Schools may choose to fill that bye week with a sub-varsity opponent.

In Class 2A, where seven teams are now in each conference instead of eight, the dilemma of odd conference numbers was solved by having the teams not involved in conference games that week play each other. The fix created seven intriguing cross-conference matchups: Lyman-Big Horn, Mountain View-Burns, Newcastle-Greybull, Big Piney-Wheatland, Lovell-Thermopolis, Pinedale-Wright and Kemmerer-Glenrock.

Two longtime rivalries were brought back to life in the Week 1 nonconference schedule, where Riverside will play Greybull and Burns will play Pine Bluffs in interclass games. However, Big Horn and Tongue River will not renew their annual rivalry as part of the regularly scheduled season.

In six-man, the schedule was unbalanced due to the number of teams (13) in the classification after Wyoming Indian and Saratoga left for 11-man and Rock River moved from the junior-varsity level to varsity. The unbalanced conference alignment forces one team in the classification per week to have an open week, which, like in 11-man, can be filled with a sub-varsity opponent. Rock River, playing its first varsity season in school history next season, opens its schedule with road games at St. Stephens and NSI the first two weeks before hosting Kaycee in Week 3.

Class 3A’s schedule was also significantly reorganized, even though the same conference alignment carried over from 2013 to 2014. However, the 3A schedule’s organization — nonconference games the first three weeks, conference games the final five weeks — remained the same.

As in previous seasons, Class 3A, Class 2A and Class 1A schools may schedule their own games or scrimmages in Zero Week. Those contests will be scheduled throughout the year.

The Class 4A schedule did not change anything except for host sites; the 2014 schedule mirrors the 2013 schedule but with locations flipped for every matchup.


Here are some week-by-week highlights of key games:

Week 0: Kelly Walsh at Gillette. The Camels spanked the improved Trojans in the season opener last year, and if KW is a contender in 2014, it will have to show it in Campbell County to start the season.

Week 1: Natrona at Cheyenne East; Powell at Douglas. The rematches for both the Class 4A and Class 3A title games this year will be staged in Week 1. They’re the only title-game rematches of the season — Class 2A, Class 1A 11-man and Class 1A six-man’s title-game participants won’t play each other in the 2014 regular season. Other key games: Big Horn at Lovell; Dubois at Guernsey-Sunrise; Rock River at St. Stephens; Burns at Pine Bluffs.

Week 2: Guernsey-Sunrise at Kaycee. Both the Vikings and Buckaroos are set up to be contenders in the six-man East Conference next season, and this is an important early conference game. Other key games: Cheyenne Central at Gillette; Riverton at Star Valley; Thermopolis at Wheatland; Riverside at Burlington; Meeteetse at Snake River.

Week 3: Natrona at Gillette; Sheridan at Cheyenne East. A reprise of this year’s 4A semifinal round will be played in Week 3 next year — and they figure to be critical games again in 2014. Other key games: Star Valley at Douglas; Pinedale at Lovell; Wheatland at Newcastle; Shoshoni at Cokeville.

Week 4: Burns at Thermopolis. The Broncs get their chance at revenge against the Bobcats, who knocked them out of the playoffs this year and move into the same conference next year, at the halfway point in 2014. Other key games: Kelly Walsh at Cheyenne East; Cody at Star Valley; Torrington at Riverton; Lovell at Mountain View; Cokeville at Rocky Mountain; Lingle at Southeast; Midwest at Kaycee.

Week 5: 4A rivalry week (Cheyenne East at Cheyenne Central; Gillette at Sheridan; Natrona at Kelly Walsh.) The Oil Bowl will be played for the 50th time in 2014 and will take center stage, but the other two 4A rivalry games will be just as significant in the conference race. Other key games: Lander at Buffalo; Star Valley at Powell; Lyman at Lovell; Dubois at Meeteetse.

Week 6: Cody at Jackson. Both Broncs squads were improved in 2013 and will want to continue to build on that in 2014, but they’ll still have to go through each other to keep pace in the competitive 3A West. Other key games: Burns at Big Horn; Newcastle at Glenrock; Lingle at Lusk; Saratoga at Burlington; Hulett at Guernsey-Sunrise.

Week 7: Southeast at Lusk. Whenever the Cyclones and Tigers meet, it’s a big game. Next season’s matchup figures to be no different. Other key games: Sheridan at Natrona; Douglas at Riverton; Jackson at Powell; Big Horn at Newcastle; Lyman at Greybull; Rocky Mountain at Riverside; Midwest at Hulett.

Week 8: Mountain View at Lyman. In a week chock full of rivalry games, the Bridger Valley showdown may be the most crucial in terms of playoff seeding and conference championship races. Other key games: Cheyenne East at Gillette; Cody at Powell; Riverton at Lander; Star Valley at Jackson; Big Piney at Pinedale; Greybull at Lovell; Burlington at Rocky Mountain; Upton-Sundance at Southeast; Guernsey-Sunrise at Meeteetse; Kaycee at Hanna.

After 18 years as head coach for Cheyenne Central, coach Brick Cegelski resigned Monday, the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle reported.


Cegelski was the Indians’ head coach for 18 years, going 85-87 since 1996. He led Central to the playoffs in 16 of those 18 seasons, including a state championship in 2005 and a runner-up finish in 2009.

Cegelski’s 85 career victories was sixth among active coaches.

Cegelski is a Cheyenne native and was an all-state quarterback for the Indians in 1979.

He is the second coach to resign so far this offseason, joining Rock Springs’ Tom Jassman.


An interesting question posed by my dad today: If Midwest wins the state championship, will the Oilers be the first team to win championships in three different styles of football (11-man, nine-man and six-man)?

The answer? Yes!

Six current schools have won state championships in two different styles of football: Glenrock (eight-man and 11-man), Hanna (six-man and nine-man), Tongue River (six-man and 11-man), Big Piney (eight-man and 11-man), Guernsey-Sunrise (six-man and 11-man) and Midwest (nine-man and 11-man). Byron (six-man and 11-man) also won titles in two different types.

A victory against Meeteetse on Saturday would give Midwest titles at six-man, nine-man and 11-man — a Wyoming first.


Here are the matchups for the state championship games next weekend at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie. The second team listed is the higher seed and will wear dark uniforms as the “home” team.

Friday, Nov. 15

Class 2A, (2W) Mountain View vs. (2E) Big Horn, noon

Class 3A, (1W) Powell vs. (1E) Douglas, 3 p.m.

Saturday, Nov. 16

Class 1A 11-man, (1E) Lusk vs. (1W) Cokeville, 1 p.m.

Class 4A, (4) Natrona vs. (3) Cheyenne East, 4 p.m.
