5 Takeaways From University of Wyoming Football Media Day
On Monday, the University of Wyoming fall sports hosted their annual media day at the Wildcatter Stadium Suites above War Memorial Stadium in Laramie.
Volleyball, cross country, and women's soccer coaches and athletes interviewed with a handful of media members before each of the respective coaches giving presentations. That was followed by football coach Craig Bohl addressing the media and interviews with football players and coaches.
Here are some of the biggest takeaways I got from chatting with the football players and coaches...
I think Wyoming fans will get to see the best quarterback since Brett Smith this season, and he's just a redshirt sophomore. Josh has a great attitude, and a huge arm. He'll make some mistakes, but I think he'll keep the Pokes in a few games this year.
I asked the junior point blank if he was considering going pro and he said "I'll make a decision after the year." I hope he returns for his senior season, but regardless, Wyoming fans should really appreciate him this year!
Despite having the most returning starters in the Mountain West Conference, this team is still playing a lot of sophomores and juniors. There will be a couple freshmen battling for starting roles, too.
Not only was Andrew Wingard the best defensive player on the field last year... as a freshman, he is one of the most well spoken kids I've ever had the opportunity to chat with. I hope a free safety isn't Wyoming's leading tackler again this year, but Andrew is on pace to have a huge season.
I asked every football player, coach, and even some of the volleyball players who the most athletic player on the football team is. Nearly everyone said D.J. May. Watch out for the linebacker who says he wants to leave a "big impression" his senior season.
