Football[edit]

Recent times has brought a level of success to the Bulldog football program.[2] The team completed the 2009 year with a record of 9 wins and 2 losses (8-1 in conference play) with a second-place finish in the conference and post-season playoff appearance for the first time.[3]

School records of the program go back to 1920, but other records show a player named Pop Hollinger played football for McPherson in 1917 or earlier.[4] It is possible that records are incorrect, incomplete, or that there was no official coach before the 1920 season.

The first paid coach for the program that the school has on record was W. E. Daniel in 1920, who posted a record of 5–3–3. Other coaches included Woody Woodard (1950–1952), Don Rominger (1973–1977), Dan Thiessen (1986–1992),[5] and current head coach Pete Sterbick.[6]
