GREAT FALLS, Mont., December 20, 2014 — The Great Falls Americans retired just their second number in club history during the first intermission of Saturday, December 20th home contest against Bozeman.

In addition to Terry Casey’s jersey, the Americans have now retired Joseph Sam Williamson’s No. 11 game jersey.

Williamson, the center and team captain for Great Falls, played from 1955 until the mid-1960’s on a team that also featured Casey.

The Americans all-time leading scorer was also on the 1952 United States Men’s National Team.
