Sheridan Closes Wyoming State High School Football Championships with 4A State Title

November 13, 2021 -- Something about playing in the Wyoming State High School Football Championships at War Memorial Stadium on the University of Wyoming campus simply brings out the best in Sheridan.

For the seventh time in nine tries since UW has hosted all five classifications in the final weekend of state high school football, Sheridan has again risen to the top of Wyoming’s largest division. Saturday night, the Broncs closed out two days of action by defeating top-ranked Rock Springs 45-27 to add to the school’s long history of excelling on the football field.

The win was the 28th state championship for Sheridan and closed out an 11-1 season, with its only loss coming in the fifth week of the season to defending state champion Cheyenne East.

Rock Springs was attempting to bring back the state championship to Sweetwater County after a 19-year drought. The Tigers were looking to add to their seven overall state titles. Rock Springs’ only loss this season was to this same Broncs team, dropping a tough 27-24 game on a 70-yard screen pass in the final minute of play.

Going into the championship game, Rock Springs had the 4A division’s top-rated offense and defense, averaging 42 points per game, while allowing just 100 yards per game on the ground. But, Sheridan turned the tables, outgaining the Tigers 417 yards in total offense to Rock Springs’ 403.

The tone was set early when Carter McComb took the opening kickoff 88 yards to the end zone to give Sheridan a stunning 7-0 lead just 13 seconds into the game. From there, the Broncs pounded the Tiger defense for 343 yards on the ground and five rushing touchdowns -- four by Colson Coon. The Sheridan running back rushed for a game-high 230 yards, averaging nearly 9 yards per carry.

Rock Springs quarterback Brock Bider accounted for all four Tiger touchdowns, rushing for three scores, while passing for another.

Shoshoni Wrangles 1A/9-Man Football Championship with 19-6 Win Over Rocky Mountain

November 13, 2021 -- Shoshoni’s first opportunity to play on the venerable War Memorial Stadium football field on the University of Wyoming campus turned into a memorable one for the Wrangler team Saturday afternoon.

Using a shutdown defense for much of the afternoon, the Wranglers captured their first state championship in 36 years -- and third overall -- taking the revamped Class 1A/9-man championship with a 19-6 victory over Rocky Mountain High School.

Shoshoni was among five schools -- the others were Encampment, Jackson, Rock Springs and Rocky Mountain -- making initial appearances on the home turf of the UW Cowboys in this year’s championship games.

It was a long time coming for the Wranglers to reach this point, but it was worth it once Shoshoni jumped into the ranks of contenders by going unbeaten down the stretch after losing its only game earlier in the season to Pine Bluffs.

The Wranglers and Grizzlies were both among the top five teams in the revamped classification that, just two years ago, was switched from 1A/11-man football to the 9-man game.

Quarterback Alex Mills completed 10 of 15 passes on the afternoon; three of his completions went for scores to receiver Trey Pike for all the scoring Shoshoni would need to defeat the Grizzlies for the second time this season. The Wranglers topped Rocky 27-10 during the regular season.

The Grizzlies’ lone score came late in the game on a 12-yards strike from Carsyn Weber to Collin Haslam. Rocky, looking for its fifth state title and first since 1998, closed out the season with a 9-2 mark.

Lyman Defeats Lovell in Defensive Battle 8-6 to Capture 2A State Title

November 13, 2021 – Lyman scored eight minutes into the game, and the team’s lone touchdown was enough as the Eagles stopped Lovell 8-6 to win their second straight Class 2A state championship Saturday at War Memorial Stadium on the University of Wyoming campus.

Chevy Fackrell carried the ball in from nine yards out with 4:30 left in the first quarter to score the first touchdown of the game. Quarterback Ashton Housekeeper then kept the ball on the successful 2-point conversion.

That score held up until Lovell managed to finally get on the scoreboard on the first play of the fourth quarter, when running back Amos Monterde punched in a short 3-yard run to cut Lyman’s lead to 8-6. Monterde was stopped short on a 2-point conversion attempt. The missed try turned out to be the difference as the two teams traded punts on time-consuming drives, with Lyman running out the final four minutes on a sustained drive.

With the win, the Eagles notched their seventh state title to complete a perfect 12-0 season. Lovell closed out its football season with two losses -- both to Lyman, including an earlier 34-15 defeat -- in a dozen games. The Bulldogs were seeking the school’s third state football championship. Lovell has not won a state title in a decade.

Lovell came in with the division’s top rushing attack, while Lyman had the second best rushing defense behind the Bulldogs. But it was the Eagles’ stout defense that held the Bulldogs’ rushing attack in check, allowing just 81 yards on the ground, while eating up the clock with 196 yards of their own.

Housekeeper led all rushers with 130 yards.

Cody Defense Carries Broncs to 3A Championship over Jackson

November 12, 2021 – Cody’s defense turned three interceptions in the second half into touchdowns to stun Jackson 41-24 to win a second straight Class 3A state championship Friday at War Memorial Stadium at the University of Wyoming.

Leading just 14-10 halfway through the third quarter, Cody turned the game to its favor with a series of interceptions to help complete an unbeaten 11-0 season. The onslaught began at the 6:38 mark when Remy Broussard returned an interception 89 yards to open the pick-6 scoring spree.

About two and a half minutes later, Matt Nelson took an errant Jackson Bronc pass the other way for a 59-yard score. Nelson then stunned Jackson with a 100-yard pick-6 about 90 seconds into the fourth quarter to stretch the lead to 35-10, sealing the Park County Broncs’ seventh state championship in school history.

The championship game was a bigger winning margin for Cody than the first meeting this season between the two Bronc squads. Cody had to use a last-minute pass touchdown pass to overtake the Teton County Broncs 21-15. Seeking the school’s fourth state title, Jackson finished the year with an 8-3 mark. The Broncs last won a state title in 2007.

Cody had the 3A division’s top rushing attack during the regular season, while Jackson’s defense gave up an average of just 104 yards this past year on the ground. In the state title game, Jackson more than doubled Cody’s offensive output 581 yards to 281, but it was the Cody defense in the second half that made the difference; in all, the Broncs’ secondary picked off four passes.

Brody Hasenack led Jackson with 143 yards rushing and all three Bronc touchdowns.

Little Snake River Outlasts Encampment in Class 1A/6-Man Title Game

November 12, 2021 – Little Snake River High School (LSRHS) broke open a tight first quarter with four touchdowns in the second frame to overwhelm Carbon County rival Encampment 65-24 in the Class 1A/6-man state championship football game Friday at the University of Wyoming’s War Memorial Stadium.

The first of five Wyoming State High School Football Championship games on the UW campus saw the top-ranked Rattlers capture their fourth title, and second in the past three seasons. LSRHS completed a perfect 10-0 season, while Encampment finished the year at 8-2 with both losses coming to the rival Rattlers.

The final score was nearly an identical outcome to the Rattlers’ 66-24 victory over the Tigers in the second game of the season in early September. Encampment has never won a state football championship. Just three seasons ago, the Tigers resurrected their football program after dropping the sport in 1990.

The Rattlers entered the championship game with the classification’s top rushing attack and had the regular season’s stingiest rush defense. LSRHS shredded the Tigers’ defense, pounding out seven touchdowns on the ground -- three of them in the final quarter to pull away from Encampment. The Rattlers also scored on a pass and returned an interception to the end zone.

The team’s top rusher, Kannadis Peroulis, and teammate Hadley Myers combined to score six touchdowns. The pair combined to rush for 274 of the team’s total of 358 yards on the ground.

Encampment quarterback Kaben Pickett threw a pair of scores, both to Koye Gilbert; the Tigers were held to just 58 yards rushing.
