Postseason Summary: 1967 State Champions
The LC Tigers had to wait a week after the conclusion of their 9 game season to learn the outcome of the State Championship. Several teams on the west side of the state played 10 game seasons, which necessitated the wait. The wait was worth it, however, as the LC Tigers increased their lead in the state polling and were awarded with the State Championship title. It was only the 2nd time in Lewis and Clark’s history that this occurred, the previous in 1955. LC players were awarded All-City, All-State, and All-American honors, while innumerable City League records were broken. Many LC players also went on to play football at notable colleges and universities.
*Note 1: Forty Years Later (2007)
The LC Tigers football team won the 2007 State Championship, becoming only the 3rd team in LC football history to earn this honor:
– 1955 (7-1)
– 1967 (9-0)
– 2007 (11-2)
*Note 2: Undefeated Teams
We have been told that only two teams in LC football history have gone undefeated.
– We do not know which team was the first to achieve this honor. If you know, please tell us.
– We do know the 1967 Tigers reached this goal.
– We are waiting patiently for the next LC team that will achieve this level of play, a State Championship and an undefeated season. Go Tigers.
