Cowboys Spring Game Saturday Wraps Up Practice Sessions
The best will get a test in Wyoming's spring football game Saturday at War Memorial Stadium.
Coach Craig Bohl has algined the rosters so that the Brown team will feature the No. 1 offense and No. 2 defense going up against a Gold team with the No. 1 defense and No. 2 offense.
The game, which will feature four 10-minute quarters, will be the 15th and final spring practice.
The format for Saturday’s Brown and Gold Spring Game will be four 10-minute quarters.
Bohl was encouraged heading into the Saturday session.
“We had a good last practice (on Thursday)," he said. "I thought we took full advantage of it,” said head coach Bohl. Guys were in full pads. We saw good things in all three phases of the game. I thought our quarterbacks did some good things, but there’s certainly some things they can improve on. And we did some good things in the kicking game.
"A day like (Thursday) where you don’t have ideal conditions, it’s important for kickers to learn how to deal with that wind. I thought Cooper (Rothe) did a nice job with the place-kicking. We worked on some other fundamental things in the punt game. Defensively, we’ve had good intensity and attention to detail shown by our veterans all spring.”
Leading the Gold Team will be Cowboy quarterbacks Nick Smith and Tyler Vander Waal, who continue their battle for the starting quarterback spot. Also featured on the Gold Team will be: senior offensive guard Kaden Jackson; senior tight ends Austin Fort, Josh Harshman and Tyree Mayfield; senior wide receiver James Price; and junior wide receiver Austin Conway.
The Brown Team will be led by veteran defenders: Cassh Maluia at linebacker; Tyler Hall at nickel back; and Antonio Hull at cornerback.
