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. 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 our history, or keeping up with current Wolverines!  Truckee Football is a Family and we look forward to seeing the many generations come together to be a part of the past, present, and future of Truckee Football.

Thank you for supporting your Wolverines!

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.”

Swalander took down the Truckee Lift a Thon record with a 315 lb. clean!  This year was the 34th Lift a Thon.  The first Lift a Thon was put on by coach Barrett in 1981-82 to help fundraise for weight training equipment.  This is the Truckee Football team’s top fundraiser and has been for years.  The school record was 310lbs. held by Cole Roberts.  Cole was only 195 lbs. but packed a punch.  He is one of two players in our history to be part of 3 State Championship teams.  This year Cole’s record was taken down by Erik Swalander who Power Cleaned 315lbs. in front of good sized crowd.  Thanks to all of you who came and witnessed a piece of Truckee history.  I also want to thank all of you who sponsored a player.  All funds go right back into the program!  Thanks to 101.5′s Keith Thomas for coming out and being a part of the awesome event.
