Coach of Year Trembly guided Dubois to 6-man state crown

Dec 9, 2012 - By Randy Tucker, Sports Writer

Improvising, adapting and overcoming challenges are all in a day's work for the 2012 Fremont County Coach of the Year. Dubois head football coach David Trembly has seen a tremendous amount of change in the football program at Dubois since he took over from Pat Ballinger in 1998.

Trembly has had the honor of coaching more varieties of football than any other active coach in Wyoming.

Trembly's career began coaching 9-man football prior to the Rams' return to the 11-man game. In a difficult decision, Trembly and other Dubois officials determined that declining enrollment would force the Rams to drop from 11-man to 6-man football beginning in the 2011 season.

In their final year of 11-man football Trembly led the Rams to the playoffs, hosting a home game against Lingle-Ft. Laramie.

Dubois is one of the smallest schools in the state, yet the Rams field a competitive team every season thanks to the work ethic and adherence to fundamentals that Trembly brings to the field.

The past two seasons brought a high learning curve for a program that had never even seen a 6-man game, much less played one.

Dubois rolled to a 9-2 finish in 2011 with their only losses coming against state champion Little Snake River.

The Rams avenged that loss with a perfect 11-0 season in 2012 including a pair of wins over Snake River.

Trembly is known for innovative offense and teaching solid tackling technique as the core of his defense.

A math teacher at Dubois High School, Trembly is a busy man, serving as the Rams head wrestling and track coach as well, where the Rams are always competitive.
