The Standlee Trophy: More then just a rivalry

Friday, October 5, 2018

There are plenty of rivalry trophies and names out there. Just think about college football in the northwest – the Apple Cup in Washington, the Civil War in Oregon, the Great Divide trophy, which goes to the winner of the Montana/Montana State football game, the Holy War in Utah.

There was a big rivalry trophy on the line on Sept. 28 in Glenns Ferry when the Pilots hosted Valley and there’s a compelling story behind it.

The Standlee Trophy. It’s not just two old rivals. The two schools have a rivalry dating back decades, that much is true, but the trophy comes from another place. For the full story, pick up a copy of the Mountain Home News or click on this link to subscribe to the newspaper's online edition.
