The Wyoming Cowboys wrapped up spring practice last Saturday afternoon in Laramie. And if you asked head coach Craig Bohl, he would tell you he wants 15 more practices this spring. That’s not because of poor practicing by the Cowboys, but more so that he can get to know his team even better and get them ready for offseason summer workouts and fall camp. But Bohl is still pleased with the overall spring, even though there are plenty of things to work on. As far as how players adjusted from the first practice to the the spring game, Bohl says that there was a break-in period for about a week, where players thought ‘What are these guys doing to us?’, but that passed quickly.
Bohl did feel that all the players bought in this spring as well, and there weren’t many defections on the team, as a total of three scholarship players left this spring. And Bohl says that shows their resolve and can-do attitude.
Bohl did announce yesterday that redshirt freshman wide receiver Nico Brown left the team citing personal reasons. Brown appeared in eight games last year, mainly on special teams. He joins offensive linemen Walker Madden and Connor Riese, as the only scholarship players to leave the team this spring.
