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.
