Stillwater Football Celebrates 1975, 1995 Ponies State Championship Teams


The 1975 State Championship team.

Stillwater Ponies football fans will be celebrating the anniversaries of the 1975 and 1995 State Championship teams this year.

Stillwater will celebrate the 20th and 40th anniversaries of the state championships on Saturday, Aug. 22 at Pony Stadium. The teams of 1975 and 1995 will be recognized during the Ponies home opener against Eagan.

Kickoff for the game is 7 p.m. There will be reserved seating for the players and their families — with a special program happening at halftime.

Until then, check out these two videos Dennis Weimann, who played on the 1984 State Championship team, produced to recap the 1975 State Championship Game and the 1995 State Tournament.

Highlights from the 1995 State Tournament:

The Ponies open the 2015 season on Aug. 22 because the Minnesota State High School League opted to finish the season before Thanksgiving since the Prep Bowl will be played outdoors.

The Ponies play three games before Labor Day and a playoff game the Friday of the Education Minnesota Professional Conference week (formerly known as MEA).
