(NUCLA, Co., SHOT 10/8/2004) Ken Soper, 66, has been head coach of the Dolores County High School Bulldogs for 40 years and has been inducted into the Colorado High School Coaches and National High School Athletic Coaches Halls of Fame as well as being the second all-time winningest coach in Colorado football. Because of a death in his family for which he had to fly back to Oklahoma, Coach Soper missed the whole week of practice and returned Friday morning before their game against the undefeated Nucla Mustangs Friday evening in a key 1A conference matchup. Soper puts on a jacket in the Nucla visitor's locker room as the last of his players just suited up for that evening's game. Soper is an institution in the small southwestern Colorado town having taught and coached multiple generations there. Soper also still coaches baseball and at one time was also the school's basketball coach. (Photo by MARC PISCOTTY / ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS)
