Coach Estabrook coined the phrase “Truckee Pride” in 1989 and he put this in the Sierra Sun the week after the State Championship loss to Boulder City in late November of that year.
“On Saturday, November 18, the Truckee community pulled together for something that was not political, controversial, or self-serving. It wasn’t about the bye-pass, a new shopping center or incorporation; it was about our kids and a community that can pull together regardless of political differences.
Over 2,000 people turned out for a local football game, the only reason being to support our high school. The football team wasn’t able to deliver the Nevada AA State Championship to Truckee, but it did deliver a sense of pride to the Truckee Community. It also delivered a chance to reflect on what a great place this is to live, and that the small town spirit is alive and important to us all.
Our team’s motto is “Truckee Pride.” Think about it. We all have it.
Thanks to everyone for your support.”
Our hope is that everyone that loves Truckee Football can make a connection here at Truckee Pride – whether it’s keeping up or reuniting with old teammates, recalling team histories, or keeping the pride going with today’s Wolverines. This is a great fraternity and we can’t wait to see the many generations come together to be a part of the past, present, and future of Truckee Football. Founded by physical education teacher Jim Brehler in the fall of 1952, Truckee Football has developed into an institution in our Town that has touched the lives of countless families.
Thank you for supporting your Wolverines!
