The 1971 Class A all-state team I had posted on the all-state listings has been updated with what I think is a more accurate and comprehensive team. The team I used to have posted was selected by an AP panel; the team posted now is the team chosen by the Wyoming Coaches Association.

I try to post the WCA teams over any other teams when available, but I did not find a WCA team for this class and year until a former Torrington Trailblazer, Mike Mitchell, emailed me one a while back. Torrington was one of the best Class A teams in the state in 1971, going 9-0, but had no players chosen for first-team honors on the AP all-state team and only three second-team players. The WCA list is definitely more representative and more inclusive.

Thanks to Mike for his help on this!
