Palisade coach Joe Ramunno has two big events this week: the Bulldogs’ first game of the 2015 season and his induction into the University of Wyoming Athletic Hall of Fame. Ramunno, who was an all-WAC offensive lineman and honorable mention All-American during his junior and senior seasons with the Cowboys, will be inducted into the Hall on Friday, one day after the Bulldogs play The Classical Academy.

Palisade coach Ramunno going into University of Wyoming Hall of Fame

Joe Ramunno is still in disbelief close to six months after receiving a phone call he never expected to get.
“It’s just such a huge honor,” the veteran Palisade High School football coach said about being inducted into the University of Wyoming Athletic Hall of Fame. “I really couldn’t believe it when I found out. But then again, I’m not one of those guys who talks a lot about myself. I’m more excited about our game stuff coming up.”
Both of those, the Hall of Fame induction ceremony and Palisade’s season opener, are rapidly approaching.
