    Rapid City Sports Hall of Fame Spotlight: Mick Wysuph (Inducted 2005)

    Mick Wysuph is arguably the best high school coach to ever roam the sidelines for a Rapid City area football team.  He remains the only coach to ever bring a state title to the city – his 1987 Stevens Raiders won the South Dakota Class 11AA football championship on a last second field goal over Sioux Falls Washington.  

    Wysuph-coached teams finished as big school runner-up on two occasions (Sturgis 1983 and Stevens 1994), and won five conference titles over a more than twenty-five year career.

    Wysuph also coached at the college and semi-pro level.

    As a player, Wysuph was an All-Conference Quarterback and led his Northern State University Wolves to two SDIC titles and one NAIA national semifinal.   

    Other honors received by Wysuph:

    • Northern State University Hall of Fame
    • SD Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame
