Summer Football Has A Potter-Dix Flavor This Year

The annual Wyoming-Nebraska 6-Man Shoot Out All-Star game was played on Friday in Chadron, and the Wyoming squad was able to outlast the Nebraska team in the highest scoring contest of the 11-game series.

Potter-Dix’s Thomas Muldoon was a defensive standout during the game, recording many tackles and pass disruptions. He also was used on kickoffs and as a receiver.

Muldoon and Jared Anton were selected to represent Potter-Dix in the annual event, as well as Head Coach Dale Frerichs as an assistant for the Nebraska team. The trio will be back at it this Saturday in the Western Nebraska All-Star Game at Scottsbluff.

In last week’s game, it was a 16-16 tie until Wyoming scored with 12 seconds left in the first half. On Nebraska’s final play of the half, Wyoming came up with an interception and runback for a touchdown to give the Wyoming All-Stars a 30-16 lead that they would not relinquish.

Nebraska pulled closer, narrowing the lead to 30-28 in the third quarter, but Wyoming was able to match the scoring plus more during the final quarter of the game, giving the Wyoming squad the 68-44 victory.
