Wick Starting to Look Like His Old Self

by Keith Kelley–26 Apr ’16

There was a question at one point last season whether Shaun Wick would be able to play football again.  Wick, who suffered from a concussion and concussion-like symptoms last year, missed most of the the season for the Cowboys.  But, the redshirt senior, got a medical waiver for one more year to play football in Laramie.  And he didn’t disappoint this spring.  He finished things up last Saturday during the spring game, rushing for 126 yards and three touchdowns for the Brown team, which featured the number one offense.

“It was exciting, I’d never seen that side of Shaun,” said redshirt sophomore quarterback Josh Allen.  “My roommate, Jake Maulhardt tells me all the time, that Shaun Wick is a different animal, and to see him coming out and running hard, putting his head down, and getting yards after contact is special to see, and that’s just going to carry over to the summer and the season.”

Cowboy head coach Craig Bohl said it was great to see Wick out there, “And when we’re good, when we’re really talented, we’ve got two really talented runners, and it’s a one-two punch.  Shaun’s come back from the concussion last year, and he’s got a great attitude.”

The Cowboys finished up spring practice last Saturday, with the annual spring game.
