Temperatures in the high 50s, overcast and breezy — welcome to fall camp at Wyoming at 7,220 feet.
Those were the weather conditions Monday morning for the Cowboys seventh practice of camp. Junior outside linebacker Chavez Pownell Jr., who is from Florida, dressed like it was November instead of August, but joked that he probably over did it a little bit.
Here are some highlights from the early portions of practice:
Fourth-year coach Craig Bohl said there was some scrimmaging in goal-line situations during practice, and liked what he saw from the offense.
Bohl also said junior running back Milo Hall “continues to show some good things,” but added there still hasn’t been a lot of separation from Hall and UW’s other running backs — junior Nico Evans and redshirt sophomore Kellen Overstreet.
Bohl said true freshman wide receiver Jared Scott, who is 6-6, 215, had a good practice.
Overstreet, senior defensive end Trevor Meader and senior right offensive tackle Ryan Cummings either didn’t practice or were limited Monday, but Bohl said their ailments were not serious. Sophomore defensive end Shiloh Windsor remains in concussion protocol, and senior fullback Drew Van Maanen (hamstring) is “making progress,” Bohl said. Bohl added sophomore Jaylon Watson, who was moved from linebacker to fullback in the spring, has done some good things since Van Maanen has been out or limited.
Bohl said the center position remains uncertain. Sophomore Gavin Rush and true freshman Patrick Arnold have been getting reps with the No. 1 offense so far in camp. Another true freshman is getting a look in Torrington’s Logan Harris. Said Bohl about Harris: “He’s a strong, physical guy with a presence.”
NFL scouts from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Detroit Lions, Arizona Cardinals and New York Jets were at Monday’s practice.
