Laramie native and walk-on University of Wyoming redshirt freshman offensive guard Josh Teeter talks about playing the majority of the game on the left side in the Cowboys’ 59-56 overtime victory over Hawaii last Saturday in his first extensive playing time of his career. The interview was done on Monday, Nov. 25, 2013 in Laramie, Wyo.

Some backup offensive linemen got some work with the starters for Wyoming during Tuesday morning’s practice at Jonah Field at War Memorial Stadium.
Redshirt freshman Chase Roullier continued to get reps at left guard for senior Tyler Strong, who missed last week’s game with Northern Colorado and is listed as questionable for Saturday night’s game at Air Force. Roullier started for Strong last week.
Sophomore Austin Traphagan got some snaps at left guard for sophomore starter Jake Jones, who appeared to suffer a minor injury in Tuesday’s practice. Traphagan is listed as a backup tackle, but also has played guard at UW. Redshirt freshman walk-on Josh Teeter also got a few snaps at guard.
Sophomore center Rafe Kiely continues to alternate snaps with junior starter Albert Perez. Perez has started the first three games, and is slated to do so at Air Force.
“We are rolling some guys in for some others who have some minor injuries,” coach Dave Christensen said. “We should be fine on Saturday.”
Coaches get a better feel for a practice or scrimmage after watching film. After Monday’s morning practice coach Dave Christensen said a few things stood out after watching the film of Sunday’s first scrimmage of fall camp.
–Christensen was impressed with the plays made by junior Tyran Finley, both at cornerback and returning punts. Finley, a junior-college transfer this summer, returned an interception 27 yards for a touchdown. The interception was thrown by junior starter Brett Smith
–He thought all of the quarterbacks managed the offense well. Smith and sophomore backup Jason Thompson got most of the reps, and had most of the production. Combined they were 39-of-49 for 529 yards with eight touchdowns and one interception.
–Christensen liked the play of the starting offensive line.
–Defensively, Christensen wants to see more pressure on the quarterback and for the unit to get off the field. There were only two three-and-outs during the scrimmage.
Here is some video highlights during a team period during Monday morning’s practice.
