UW spring football notes and quotes

Wyoming is nearly one-third of the way through spring practice. Here are a few notes and quotes that haven’t made this blog yet, or any of the other stories I’ve done to this point.

–UW coach Craig Bohl said sophomore defensive end Seth Edeen, a walk-on from Cheyenne and graduate of Cheyenne Central, had a good offseason and added about 15 pounds over the winter. During early walk-throughs from the first few practices, Edeen has been rotating in with some of the regular guys such as seniors Eddie Yarbrough and Siaosi Hala’api’api. Another guy rotating in is redshirt freshman Jonathan Kongbo. For more on him, see Wednesday’s Wyoming Tribune Eagle and Laramie Boomerang, and log on to wyosports.net.

–To no one’s surprise, Bohl said senior Shaun Wick and sophomore Brian Hill have stood out as UW’s top two running backs this spring.

The competition level we have allows us to push other so much that it’s crazy. Nobody is going to get mad at each other. Everyone is pushing each other to be the best we can be as a position group.” — sophomore running back Josh Tapscott.

Thursday marked the camp debut of sophomore long snapper Brendan Turelli. He got

some handshakes and good-natured teasing from teammates. Turelli and senior kicker have been in Laramie but not part of camp as coach Craig Bohl wants to look at some players at other positions early in camp. Williams will be in camp soon, but is working on his own.   Continue reading

UW fall camp notes – Day 2

The start of Wyoming’s second practice of fall camp was much like its first on Monday.

The team was in helmets and shorts.

They started in its indoor practice facility, but spent the majority of the practice outside in War Memorial Stadium.

The Cowboys did some drill work early on, and worked specifically on some special teams areas such as blocking punts. Here is some video of that:
