Logan Wilson Earns MW Defensive Player of the Week Award

Laramie --  Wyoming junior linebacker Logan Wilson, a product of Casper’s Natrona County High School, was selected the Mountain West Conference Defensive Player of the Week by College Sports Madness for his performance last Friday against Colorado State. 

 Wilson helped lead the Cowboys to a 34-21 win over rival Colorado State in the 100th edition of the Border War between the two schools, making the Cowboys 3-0 in Wilson’s three years on the team.

Wilson led the Cowboys with 12 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss and one pass breakup in the  road victory over CSU.  For the season, he ranks No. 9  in the league and No. 55 in the nation in tackles per game (8.8), and he leads Wyoming in total tackles, with 79.

The Cowboy defense held Colorado State to only 20 rushing yards and 21 points, while forcing three CSU turnovers. 

Wilson was a Second Team All-Mountain West Conference selection a year ago as a sophomore, and he was the 2016 MW Freshman of the Year.
