Athlete.¬† A legend of Wolbach High School on the edge of Greeley County, this 1937 graduate accomplished a very rare feat, setting a national high school record in the discus of 154′ 9″ during an era when the high school discus was the exact same weight as the college discus in America. High schools went to a lighter discus in 1939 and began separate record-keeping, so Wibbels fans can claim he still holds the national high school mark. He was an all-state football player in 1936 and a state meet gold medal winner in the discus and javelin throw in 1936 and 1937. In addition, Edsel Wibbels was an all-state fullback on the gridiron for the Mustangs. In short, a famous name on the great plains is the legacy of this talented young man.
