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.


One Thought on “Diversity and success: Championships in multiple styles

    Oiler Pride! Contrary to popular belief of some, I do believe Midwest holds the ability this season to beat this feat as stated by Schmiedt. Not just becasue I’m alumni, no, but because this team has merely hit it’s peak for the season. Watch us in Laramie- Triple Crown winners to be!
