The Byron Eagles established themselves as undisputed champions in six-man football as they crossed the state of Wyoming to the border of Nebraska, and there, in the little town of Pine Bluffs, closed the football season with an impressive 44-0 victory over the division champions for the southwest.
Starting the game for the Eagles were Roy Snell, LeRoy Sedgwick, Wayne Porter, Carm Sessions, Jay Mangus and Melden Tanner, each of whom checked up a touchdown with Snell scoring twice and Porter kicking the extra two points. Alternating with the first linesmen were Bob Timlin, Waldo Jensen, Earl Watts, Homer Lynam, Don Griggs, Jerry Littlefield and Gary Stevens. The twenty-two boys of the football squad were accompanied by Supt. Simmons and Coach Wilford Mower.
This is the second state championship for Byron in 1948; they took the limelight last spring when they received state honors in basketball, B Division. In football they have been undefeated in four years of conference play.

Lovell High School junior Justin Mickelson was selected this summer to perform with the Macy’s Great American Marching Band and will depart Saturday for what promises to be an exciting week in New York City. The son of Frank and Michelle Mickelson of Lovell, Justin has twice been selected for the Wyoming All-State Band, and that track record led to him being invited this summer for the Macy’s band. As an all-state trombonist, he didn’t have to audition for the national marching band. He received a letter of invitation and simply mailed in an application.
