Wolves Finish Memorable Season at 9-1
A remarkable, undefeated run for the Westminster Wolves football team came to a close Friday night with 28-14 state playoff loss to Fruita Monument at District 50 Memorial Stadium. The Wolves didn't go as deep into the playoffs as they had hoped, but the outcome doesn't diminish a spectacular season.
Star running back Brandon Dickerson sent out a tweet after the game: “Couldn't have asked for a better year. Love my team, crowd, and our season. Thank you all for all the support!”
It’s been quite a year for Dickerson. In the second week of the season he was named ASPIRE Athlete of the Week.
Not only did the wolves win the Flatirons Conference Title, but their success on the field became a point of school and community pride. Fans packed the stadium all season long and among those at Friday night’s game were Congressman Ed Perlmutter, Westminster Mayor Herb Atchison and members of the Westminster City Council.
“It was a great experience for our kids and really the whole community,” said Athletic Director Glenda Bates. “We hope the enthusiasm continues over into our winter sports programs.”
It was also a banner year for the coaching staff. The Denver Post named Coach Kerry Denison the Denver Broncos High School Coach of the Week last month. With the recognition came a $1,000 donation to Westminster High School in his name and he is now in the running for Coach of the Year honors, which brings a $2,000 award.
Coach Denison will be honored at half time of the Broncos-San Diego Chargers game on January 3rd.
