From 1962 to 1967 in all classes, and from 1962 to 1974 in Classes A and B-C, postseason football was shut down in Wyoming. No playoffs, no state championship games, nothing. Only an unsatisfying mythical championship that, in the end, was just opinion. The next several days, wyoming-football.com is taking a look at the title games and playoff brackets we missed out on in the “dead era” of the 1960s and 1970s.
Today, we examine the year 1962.
Class AA: Laramie (9-0) vs. Sheridan (5-4-1). Sheridan did not have a great season, but won enough games to win the AA North title. However, one of the Broncs’ losses was a 24-0 loss to Laramie — a Plainsman team that was dominant, as Laramie teams tended to be in the 1960s.
Class A: Lusk (9-0) vs. Greybull (8-0) OR Star Valley (9-0). Greybull went unbeaten the hard way, beating five Class AA Big Horn Basin teams (Powell, Cody, Riverton, Worland, Lander), while Star Valley went unbeaten in the Southwest round-robin. Lusk was just as good in the East, with only one conference foe coming within 26 points of the Tigers.
