We Salute the Greatest of All Time

By Staff | Oct 10, 2018

Well, there you have it. This week we have published the Wetzel-Tyler Newspapers’ list of our area’s All-Time Greatest in athletics. We have listed 25 top-notch athletes and five equally legendary coaches.

Not everyone will agree with our decision, and that is certainly okay. When we first brought forth the idea of this special feature, we had noted the topic would launch great discussion and debate. It already has, and we are certain it will continue to do such.

However, this is truly a community labor. We requested nominations, and we received hundreds of them. We also requested stats and information – a compelling argument – to accompany each nomination.

We hope our readers enjoy the fruits of this community endeavor. Most of all, may it showcase just how much history and talent our small communities have yielded, and continue to yield.
