Joe Epler Present LOOKING BACK By Curt Synness Thirty years ago, three local AA football players signed to play for Western Montana College, including Capital High’s Kyle Mihelish and Mark Olson, and Helena’s Mike Flaherty. Mihelish, a 5’9”, 165-pound defensive back, was described by Bulldog coach Mick Dennehy as “one of the top cornerbacks in Class AA football this past fall (1989). Kyle’s a great cover man who played a very similar defense in high school as we do at Western.” Other Bruin alums who joined Mihelish at Western Kyle Mihelish were Dan Farnam, Dan Olson, Casey Lyndes and James Sheridan. After red-shirting, Kyle played four seasons for the ‘Dawgs, highlighted by his two interceptions against Minot State his senior year, when he was named the Frontier’s Defensive Player of the Week in 1994. Mihelish, CHS’ fifth-year head grid coach, was also a standout prep swimmer. He garnered a pair of All-State medals in the 100 backstroke for the brown-and-gold at the State Swim Meets, placing fifth in 1989 (59.26) and sixth as a senior. Have a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
