Football Highlights and Team Roster

Kenny Sailors was a 140-pound end on the Laramie HS football team. He compensated for his small size with speed, agility, concentration, and the toughness his coach, Floyd Foreman, taught his players. Kenny's skills allowed him to consistently outmaneuver bigger opposing blockers and wreak havoc in the other teams' backfields. Coach Foreman told Kenny that as a defensive end his job was twofold: 1) keep running backs from getting outside, i.e. turn in the end runs, and 2) get the quarterback. Kenny did these so well he was all-state his senior year.

Kenny wanted to go out for football at the University of Wyoming. However, his basketball coach, Everett Shelton, wouldn't allow it if Kenny wanted also to play basketball. That's why Kenny didn't play football for the Cowboys and, as fate would have it, was a very good decision!
