Wyoming Cowboys Start Spring Football [VIDEO]
Spring football practice for the Wyoming Cowboys is underway. The first of the spring practices was today.
Second year head coach Craig Bohl has 10 starters and 33 lettermen returning from last year's squad.
Plenty of questions are surrounding this young team.
The Pokes have to find a new quarterback, again. There are five guys vying for the position. They're also looking for two new starters and more depth along the offensive line. The good news is UW returns a solid one-two punch in the backfield with senior Shaun Wick and sophomore Brian Hill. Both ran for over 750 yards last season.
The big questions on defense are in the back seven. Wyoming has to replace three senior starters at linebacker and two spots in the secondary. In addition, the Cowboys lost two starters on the defensive line, but have more experience there than other two defensive units.
Wyoming offensive coordinator Brent Vigen was a recent guest of 'Laramie Live on KOWB.' He provided some insight into what the Cowboys spring practice will be all about.
Wyoming will practice again on Friday, April 3 with no pads. They will get into pads, but will not tackle on Saturday, April 4. The first full contact session is next Monday, April 6. It all leads up to the annual Spring Game on Saturday, April 25 at 2 p.m.
Only the first 30 minutes of each practice, up until the Spring Game, is open to the media and public.
