Jim Street. Just saying his name reminds you of dominating Butte High wrestling teams.

Street’s Bulldogs won the Class AA State title 15 times. That run includes 13 straight from 1980 through 1992.

He played football, ran track and, of course, wrestled for Butte High before graduating in 1965. He was a standout on coach Sam Jankovich’s 1964 undefeated state championship football team before going on to play football at Eastern Montana College, where he also wrestled. He wrestled at Montana State, too, before becoming a teacher and coach at Butte High.

Street was a defensive assistant on Butte High’s 1977 and 1981 state championship football teams. The 1977 team was voted the best Butte High team of the 20th Century, and defense led the way. The Bulldogs gave up just three touchdowns and 20 points all season long while compiling a record of 11-0.

Where Street is best known, however, is on the wrestling mat. Coach Street demanded that his wrestlers work hard to get better every day, and they did.
