The moments after the Miners defeated Moapa Valley for the 1988 State AA Championship.  The final score was Miners: 21 – Moapa Valley: 17.  The RGJ’s caption for the picture says that the player in the foreground, # 14, is Scott Talbott who was the Miners’ quarterback that year.

The 1982 Nevada state championship game pitted Bishop Manogue against bitter rival the Truckee Wolverines. Down 13-0 at the half, the Miner struggled mightily to move the ball. The third  quarter passed with the ball changing possession but no score. It seemed like a field position battle with the Wolverines trying to run the clock out and win the state title.
