A former Wyoming journalist has written a book on the history of Wyoming High school football. In addition to a comprehensive website, Patrick Schmiedt has written A Century of Fridays.
He says it took around eight years to sort through a vast amount of information and history.
At 596 pages, the book is an exhaustive look at high school football in the Equality State. With results of more than 22,000 games, several thousand names of all-state players dating back to 1920, and a look back at the events, people and games that helped shape the game, this book covers everything about the sport in Wyoming.
In addition to the results and listings, the book also provides information about former Wyoming high school players who have reached the NFL; the records of the 100 most victorious coaches in state history; details about deaths that have occurred from players in the state; and records and results from the Shrine Bowl.
The book also includes contributions from numerous coaches, players and media members, who picked out their favorite players, teams and moments from more than a century’s worth of games.
The book is available only online for now by going to the publishers site at lulu.com, L U L U dot com and search for Century of Friday’s.
