Updated: Aug 19, 2022


Wallace Football Looks for Experience to Lead the Way in 2022

Following a strong 2021 campaign, the Wallace Wildcats will look for even more success in 2022. This squad finished the year at 9-2 and made it to the finals before falling to eventual D6 champion Cody-Kilgore. By the looks of it, the Wildcats will bring back some firepower. "We return some key pieces from last year's team," said head coach Eric Miller.


And does he ever, as one of the top players in the D6 ranks is Carson Glunz. Glunz had a an incredible junior season rushing for nearly 2,000 yards and 31 scores. He was also a problem for opponents on the defensive side, recording 135 tackles.


"We need to continue to develop leadership on our team as well," Miller mentioned. Glunz and fellow senior Kyler Flaming will look be leaders for the squad. Flaming was a matchup problem for teams and will continue to be with his 5'11 200 pound frame. He had three touchdown receptions and 78 tackles last season.


Wallace will begin the season with a rematch against the team who ended their season last year, Cody-Kilgore on Friday, August 26th in Cody.





Wallace Cross Country Teams Bolsters Tons of Potential

Finally, Dajana Garrison, a junior, placed 6th at RPAC freshman year. Head Coach of the Wallace Wildcats, Madisen Messersmith, looks for the girls team to be strong. "I think we're looking at another successful year for the girls team. We have three returning girls who have had success in the past and who have put in some work this summer." Messersmith also mentioned that she feels they could have a chance to compete for a district title this year too. Other teams in their district include Morrill, Sutherland, Bridgeport, and Hemingford.


On the boys side the roster is still working itself out. Messersmith mentioned Ryun Sheets as a potential newcomer who could make an impact for the Wildcats
