Once again, Lyman coach Ted Holmstrom has come through in a big way in providing help regarding his school’s football history. He recently sent me updates for 11 seasons — 11 new games and 10 missing games:
1947: Corrected the date of the Oct. 24 game between Lyman and Big Piney (had originally listed Oct. 17)
1952: Added three games, Lyman’s 51-0 victory over Big Piney on Oct. 10; Lyman’s 18-18 tie with Cokeville on Oct. 17; and Lyman’s 37-6 victory over Big Piney on Oct. 24. Found the score for Lyman’s 42-18 victory over Cokeville on Oct. 3. Also removed a missing game scheduled Oct. 24 with Baggs-Snake River.
1953: Added two games, Lyman’s 38-14 loss to Cokeville on Oct. 1 and Lyman’s 61-61 tie with Big Piney on Oct. 16. (That 61-61 tie also set a new state record for the highest-scoring tie game — and by a wide margin, too.)
1954: Added one game, Lyman’s 48-33 victory over North Rich, Utah, on Oct. 21. Also found scores for two games, Lyman’s 38-21 loss to Cokeville on Sept. 24 and Lyman’s 54-13 victory over Baggs-Snake River on Oct. 11.
1957: Found scores for two missing games, Lyman’s 34-12 loss to Cokeville on Oct. 11 and Lyman’s 34-30 victory over Mountain View on Oct. 18.
1958: Added two games, Lyman’s 39-12 victory over Mountain View on Sept. 26 and Lyman’s 12-7 loss to Hanna on Oct. 17.
1959: Found scores for two missing games, Lyman’s 28-19 loss to Superior on Sept. 11 and Lyman’s 21-0 victory over Mountain View on Sept. 18.
1966: Added Lyman’s 18-0 loss to Provo, Utah, on Oct. 7.
1967: Added Lyman’s 46-33 victory over Ogden Deaf School, Utah, on Oct. 6
1968: Found a score for Lyman’s 36-6 victory over Ogden Deaf School, Utah, on Oct. 18.
1969: Added Lyman’s 7-6 victory over Park City, Utah, on Oct. 24.
Coach Holmstrom also hooked me up with all the missing coaches I had for Lyman on the Coaches Project. Thanks, coach!
Glendo native and current Greybull coach John Cundall hooked me up with a list of Glendo’s coaches for the Coaches Project. Every year but 1952 has been accounted for in regards to the Eagles’ history. Glendo coaches were notoriously tough for me to find, so coach Cundall’s list was a huge, huge help to me. Thanks a ton, coach!
In between receiving awesome e-mails from coaches, I’ve been chipping away at the Coaches Project on my own. The following schools have received updates in the past couple weeks, mostly in the 1960s or early 1970s: Arvada-Clearmont, Basin, Bow-Basin, Byron, Cowley, Deaver-Frannie, Goshen Hole, Guernsey, Hanna, Huntley, Jackson, Lander, Lingle, Manderson, Pavillion, Saratoga, St. Mary’s, Sunrise, Ten Sleep, Tongue River, Torrington. Check out those teams’ individual pages to see the updates.
The coaching list for Bow-Basin is now complete, which is pretty sweet.
I’ve got nearly every coach from 1964 to the present, with the exception of Huntley in the four seasons from 1965-68, Deaver-Frannie and Manderson in 1970, Pinedale in 1964 and Goshen Hole in 1966…. as well as Cokeville for pretty much every year prior to 1976. Cokeville is the only school where I’m still getting hung up, so if anyone knows who Cokeville’s coaches were back in the day, shoot me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and fill me in on who’s missing from the list. Cokeville’s team page is here.
That’s it for now. Obviously it’s been a fun week!
