BLOG BREAKDOWN: Cheyenne South

South helmet right webThe Cheyenne South Bison are coming off of a 1-8 campaign in 2013. The win over Rock Springs was the Bison’s first in varsity competition.They graduated several key contributors from last season’s squad.That youth concerns fourth-year coach Tracy Pugh, but he is hopeful that the Bison can overcome it.

Here’s a look Cheyenne South’s 2014 football personnel as told to WyoSports’ assistant editor Jeremiah Johnke by Pugh.

“We’re going to throw the ball a little bit more, but we’re still going to line up and put our nose on your nose,” the coach said. “We’re going to try to run the ball right over you.”

Rock Springs was the job Hastings wanted all along

David Hastings

David Hastings

David Hastings knows that his path to Rock Springs raises red flags for some people. That’s why he sits at his desk patiently and thoughtfully answering questions about how he arrived at his third job in five months.

“This is the job that I ultimately wanted,” Hastings said before the Tigers’ practice Thursday. “It was about doing what was right for my family and ending up where we wanted to be.”

Hastings was either fired or resigned from his post at Lehi (Utah) High in early January after guiding a team that had endured a 26-game losing streak prior to his arrival to a 5-5 record and a spot in the Class 5A playoffs. That earned Hastings coach of the year honors from the Provo Daily Herald. Hastings described his departure from Lehi as being “let go” Thursday. This Salt Lake Deseret News story characterized it as a resignation.

Regardless of how Hastings left Lehi, it didn’t take him long to find another job. He was hired by Hillcrest High in Midvale, Utah on Jan. 28.

Natrona wants to make special teams woes a distant memory

Cheyenne East’s student section wasted no time starting the chant when Casper Natrona County’s Logan Wilson toed the free-throw line this past Dec. 7.

Wilson, Logan

Logan Wilson

“Wiiiiiiide left! Wiiiiiiide left! Wiiiiiiide left!”

The taunt was a cruel reminder that Wilson had missed a 36-yard field goal late in the Class 4A football championship, a game that East won 14-13 on Nov. 16 at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie. Making that field goal would have given the Mustangs a 16-14 lead and, almost certainly, secured them second consecutive state title.

That loss was Natrona’s fourth of the season. All of those setbacks came by just one point and three of those games went to at least one overtime. Three of them came down to late-game point after touchdowns and the state title tilt was decided, in part, by a field goal. Continue reading
