It’s been 21 years since the Torrington Trailblazers have played for a state football championship.
That changes on Friday when Torrington takes on Cody for the 3A state title at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie.
Torrington is coming off a thrilling 17-13 semifinal win over Green River this past Friday night.
The Blazers ran through the regular season with a 7-1 record. They’ve tacked on a pair of wins in the playoffs; before beating Green River it was a round one win over Worland.
Torrington’s only loss came in week two out at Star Valley by the final of 38-14.
Cody went 1-1 against Star Valley this season, losing in week five 16-6 before avenging that loss last week in the state semifinals with a 31-21 win.
Overall for Cody on the year a record of 6-3.
