The most positive aspect of Wyoming’s special teams from the spring was junior kicker Stuart Williams.
In three scrimmages and the spring game, Williams made all 25 of his extra-point attempts and was 20 of 21 on field goals, with a long of 41. Williams also did a lot of kicking during practices, and was accurate then, too.
His efforts earned him a scholarship starting this fall.
Williams worked hard in the offseason, and it showed. The ball is getting off his foot faster and higher. I think he is most comfortable from 40 yards and in, but he has the leg to make field goals of up to 50 yards.
The two field goals Williams missed were blocked.
What also made his spring effort impressive was that UW didn’t have a consistent long snapper. Often times the snaps were low and slow, which can mess up the timing on kicks. The Cowboys are relying on true freshman Brendan Turelli to come in this fall and handle those duties.
