Waukesha County Junkyard Dogs

On November 12th 2004, Jeremy Lambie, Lance Zodrow, Dave Lemke and Scott Hall met at The Charcoal Grill in West Bend, Wisconsin to discuss the possibility of starting a semi-professional football club to compete in the Wisconsin State Football League. Before concluding this meeting, it was decided to enter the 2005 WSFL season with the newly created West Bend Mustangs. The nucleus of the West Bend semi-pro football team would come from the Sarios Flag Football Club which had won numerous championships (a link to the Sarios Flag Football club is included under the links tab of this website). During the next few months the organizers and coaching staff decided to change the team nickname to the Junkyard Dogs, a name linked to the past football heritage of West Bend West. The organizers also decided that if they could put athletes together from both West Bend East and West they would then have an excellent chance to succeed in semi-pro football.


In the Junkyard Dogs’ first season (2005), its founders were proven correct. After a 3-3 start the team won its final seven games by a whopping 271-74 margin. In the championship game against the two-time defending WSFL Champion Oostburg Rebels, the Dog's were down 12-6 with a little over a minute left in the game and were 45 yards away in a driving rain storm. The team proceeded to drive the distance to tie the score on a Mark Hauer TD catch from Scott Hall with eight seconds remaining. Pat Klug followed up with a 2 point conversion run to seal the Championship in the Dog's first season of competition – exactly one year to the day they were formed.


West Bend finished 9-1 in the 2006 regular season to capture the North Division regular season championship with the WSFL’s best regular season record.  After two weeks, off the Junkyard Dogs then dropped the WSFL’s North Division playoff game to the Oostburg Rebels 20-0.


The Junkyard Dogs went 8-2 during the regular season in 2007.  They defeated the Racine Horsemen and the Stateline Hawks to get to the championship game. In the WSFL Championship game, the Junkyard Dogs fell behind 18-0 before scrapping back to take a 19-18 lead going into the 4th quarter.  However, the Junkyard Dogs finally succumbed to the Fox Valley Force midway through the 4th quarter to fall 32-19.


After a slow start to the season the West Bend Junk Yard Dogs finished the 2008 WSFL regular season 6-4, before dropping their playoff game to the Fox Valley Force. After the 2008 season, Jerry "JT" Thull purchased the team from Scott Hall.
