Wow. Nearly 3,000 more games over the course of 13 seasons — the newest site update was a massive one. However, now, every season from 1933 to 1945 is posted here for you to check out.

The late 1930s and early 1940s were definitely an interesting time in Wyoming’s high school football history. From the playoff structure to school infighting to six-man football to World War II, this was a time of change. I don’t think any other time period saw as much change in Wyoming high school football as the 12 years from 1934 to 1946… but I’ll fill you in on all that later.

For now, check out your favorite team’s page to see how they did in the 13 years from 1933 to 1945, the newest additions to this site. Also, take time to check out the pages I added for the seven programs in this era that disbanded for good before the end of World War II: the Carpenter Coyotes, the Fort Laramie Pioneers, the Fort Washakie Indians, the Gebo Miners, the Hawk Springs Hawks, the Heart Mountain Eagles and Monarch.

Check out the all-time standings for every program, either by winning percentage or by number of victories. Adding 13 years to these standings shook them up quite a bit!

Look at the school timeline (at the bottom of the page) and see when the state has seen its most movement of teams.

Scour the missing games list and the Coaches Project listings to see if you can help me fill in some missing information!

Most of all, take the time to browse at your own pace, looking at what you want when you want. Enjoy what I’ve posted. After all, that’s why it is there in the first place.

Meanwhile, for me, the research continues. I’ve been slowed down by life a bit this summer, but hopefully within the next 10 months, my research will be “done.” Coe Library awaits….

(By the way, the latest update helped me reach an interesting milestone for this site. I have now logged 20,014 games, finally breaking that 20,000 barrier! If you’re interested, I keep a running total after each site update on the front page of the site.)
