Back in 1951, Burley High School took the area by storm. The Bears set numerous records on the baseball diamond, basketball court, and more importantly on the football field.

On the gridiron, the Bears won 26 games in a row spanning more than one season. Another record that still stands today, is a Bears team that was undefeated and unscored on.

On Thursday, the 16 years of dominance by Burley High School were recognized by the unveiling of a brand new trophy case inside what is now Burley Middle School.
