Athlete. For years, he was regarded the best athlete in the history of his high school, David City. This big bruiser excelled at everything he tried. He starred in the 1951 football state tournament when his David City teammates played the underdog role to a maximum and won the championship, by 60-55 over Wayne in the finals. At that time, the points scored by both teams in that game were the most in one game at the state tournament. Fyfe was chosen Class B basketball all-tournament in a three-game run that also included a two-overtime win in the semifinals. Doyle starred in track, too, reigning one year as state champion in the shot put. At Kearney State, his athlete prowess flourished and he chose to go into coaching, namely Hebron (state tournament runner-up 1956) and Pueblo, Colorado (state class AAA runner-up three consecutive years). He returned to UNK for 26 years. He was the first athlete selected for the UNK Hall of Fame.
