The Talent Was There, the Wins Weren’t
by Keith Kelley–15 Apr ’21
The expectations for Wyoming football in 2020 were high. Even in a pandemic, the Cowboys were picked to finish second in the Mountain Division of the Mountain West Conference, and contend for a league title.
That didn’t happen for several reason, but, at 2-4, that really rubbed some players the wrong way. Cowboy super-senior Garrett Crall was one of those. He says, it’s mind-boggling to him how they didn’t have more success last year.
“When you look at the talent, and then look at the record, it doesn’t really add up. And that’s what I struggled with the most, was seeing how many talented guys we had out there, and we just weren’t finishing games like we should have. It’s hard to point a finger to where that exactly comes from, but I think we’ve done a good job this offseason, as captains, talking to Coach Bohl and Coach (Eric) Donoval down in the weight room. He (Donoval) does so much for the program, and has made us such more of a family down there, and accountable to each other.”
The Cowboys are continuing with spring practice in Laramie. They have practice #5 this (Thursday) afternoon, and will wrap up week two of spring Saturday morning.
