**For Immediate Release**
Half a Century with OPSU Football

- by OPSU Sports on 12/27/06

Goodwell , Okla. - Junior Wolf has been a part of Oklahoma Panhandle State University football for over fifty years. Arriving in Goodwell in the mid-1950s, Wolf became a legend on the field and closely follows Aggie football to this very day.

Wolf was a rugged 6’4” and 190-pound two way player at OPSU, earning All-America honors in 1958 and he was regarded as one of the finest players in the entire country. To this very day, no player in any division of the NCAA has eclipsed his record of eight rushing touchdowns in a single game. As a player, Wolf was known for his toughness and a favorite story told by old time Aggie fans concerns a game when he had five teeth knocked out and continued to play until the contest was over, and then went to the dentist.

Now living in retirement in Oregon after a distinguished career with the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Wolf and his wife Dona make frequent trips to the Panhandle Region. When he attends football games he is always an honored guest and two years ago, at a halftime ceremony, Wolf was presented a citizenship award from the Kiowa Nation.

Wolf also follows the happenings at the school very closely via Internet broadcasts and press releases and communicates regularly with Scott Puryear, OPSU Business Instructor and Sports Information Director. He is a great fan of all OPSU sports and looks forward to meeting with the football team during his next visit. He’s also eager to meet the new OPSU football coach, Mike Wyatt.

He is also very proud that he received his college education at Oklahoma Panhandle State University. A photo of Wolf during his Aggie playing days and his All-America certificate are displayed in a place of honor in Oscar Williams Fieldhouse on the OPSU campus.
