  04/10/21 - John HoylandFr/2024, Wyoming, 5-09, 183 (DS#18 K) + More +

  Turns out John Hoyland's All-America season earned him more than just postseason accolades. Wyoming's freshman kicker has been placed on scholarship, UW coach Craig Bohl announced Tuesday night following the Cowboys' first spring practice. Hoyland joined the Cowboys' program as a walk-on last year after playing his prep ball at Legacy High in Bloomfield, Colorado. "John did a great job for us, and he's been placed on scholarship," Bohl said in a statement. Join us each week for the Pokescast, a podcast about University of Wyoming athletics brought to you by the Star-Tribune. Hoyland looked like anything but a non-scholarship player in his inaugural season with the Cowboys after being thrust into the starting role at placekicker following an injury to Luke Glassock, who entered the Cowboys' pandemic-shortened season at the top of the depth chart there. Hoyland went 4-for-4 on field goals in his first collegiate game against Nevada, including a career-long 42-yarder that sent the game to overtime. That performance helped the 5-foot-10, 184-pounder go from a temporary fill-in to the heir apparent to Cooper Rothe, who finished his UW career in 2019 as the program's all-time leading scorer. - Casper Star-Tribune

  04/06/21 - Chad MumaJr/2022, Wyoming, 6-3, 227 (DS#66 ILB) + More +

  After spending the 2019 season as the Cowboys' primary backup at the position, Chad Muma stepped in for Wilson and kept the production going in the middle of UW's defense. The junior led the team with 72 tackles - 28 more than the second-leading tackler, safety Esaias Gandy - and three sacks during a season that was limited to just six games because of the coronavirus pandemic. That averaged out to 11.8 stops per game, which was good for third nationally.

Muma ended the season earning first-team all-Mountain West honors and enters his second year as the Cowboys' starting middle linebacker and one of the unquestioned leaders of the defense after also being voted a team captain last season. Lining up beside him again this spring will be outside linebacker Charles Hicks, who emerged from relative obscurity in his first season as a starter to finish with 27 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks and an interception. - Casper Star Tribune

  04/02/21 - Xazavian ValladayrJr/2022, Wyoming, 6-0, 196 (DS#15 RB) + More +

  At the beginning of last season, Xazavian Valladay was Wyoming's unquestioned RB1. By the end of it, Trey Smith held that distinction. The Cowboys once again have a backfield duo that's virtually interchangeable in that role. At first, there was a chance Valladay would be the only half of that pairing to return to UW for another season. But Smith, who had already been in the program for two years after transferring from Louisville, decided to use the free year of eligibility granted to seniors by the NCAA and run it back at UW. It gives the Cowboys' running game one of the Mountain West's top 1-2 punches heading into the spring. Valladay, a redshirt junior last season, led the league in rushing on a per-game basis in 2019 before finishing third in the conference in rushing yards (550) during the Cowboys' pandemic-shortened season last fall. A late-season injury forced him to miss a game and limited him to just 17 carries in the final two games he played, but UW's production on the ground didn't drop off much thanks to Smith. - Casper Star-Tribune

  03/29/21 - Sean ChambersrSo/2023, Wyoming, 6-2, 225 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Sean Chambers' comeback tour will again return to War Memorial Stadium this spring. It's been a frustrating last couple of seasons for Wyoming's sophomore quarterback, whose tough luck with injuries has been well-documented. Three season-ending injuries in as many years have kept Chambers off the field far more often than he's been on it. When healthy, the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder has proven to be arguably the Mountain West's most dynamic signal callers with his legs. Chambers is averaging 6 yards per carry and has already accounted for 12 rushing touchdowns despite playing just 13 games so far with 12 starts. Chambers is expected to be full go for spring practice, which is scheduled to begin April 6, and the top priority for the Cowboys has to be keeping it that way heading into the summer and into the fall. The same could be said for Levi Williams, who took over as the starter once Chambers went down with a leg injury three snaps into the Cowboys' pandemic-shortened season. - Casper Star-Tribune

  It may be later than usual, but Wyoming's football team will have a spring this year. At least that's the plan. UW is slated to begin spring practice April 6, head coach Craig Bohl said Monday. The Cowboys' annual Brown and Gold game is also tentatively slated for May 8 at War Memorial Stadium, which gives UW more than four weeks to get their 15 spring practices in based on the current schedule. The Cowboys usually begin spring drills in mid-to-late March, but Bohl said he wanted to buy more time this spring amid the coronavirus pandemic, which kept UW from holding spring practices last year. - Casper Star-Tribune

  02/09/21 - Nick NullSr/2021, Wyoming, 5-11, 175 (DS#999 P) + More +

  Wyoming specialist Nick Null is leaving the program. A team source told the Star-Tribune on Monday that Null, a graduate transfer, is not returning to UW despite the NCAA granting all fall-sport athletes another year of eligibility in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Null later took to Twitter to announce his decision to transfer. Null's UW career lasted one season after he transferred from Cornell, where he handled punting, field goal and kickoff duties. - Casper Star-Tribune

  01/19/21 - John HoylandFr/2024, Wyoming, 5-09, 183 (DS#18 K) + More +

  John Hoyland began his freshman season at Wyoming as a temporary fill-in. By the time it was over, he'd become a permanent replacement. Now the Cowboys' placekicker is an All-American. Hoyland on Monday was named a freshman All-American by the Football Writers Association of America. The Broomfield, Colorado, native was among 32 players and one of just 17 true freshmen to earn the nod. A walk-on from Legacy High School, Hoyland was a virtual afterthought leading up to the season when it came to the idea of replacing former Lou Groza Award finalist Cooper Rothe, who ended his UW career as the program's all-time leading scorer. Hoyland was buried on the depth chart behind Cornell graduate transfer Nick Null and redshirt freshman Luke Glassock. - Casper Srar-Tribune

  Count Trey Smith among Wyoming's senior football players who will be back for another season. Smith told the Star-Tribune on Thursday he will return for his third season at UW next fall, keeping one of the Mountain West's top rushing duos intact. The Cowboys' running back has rushed for 715 yards and eight touchdowns in 10 games since joining UW's program as a graduate transfer. Smith, who's on track to receive his master's degree from UW next fall, joins defensive end Garrett Crall and receiver Ayden Eberhardt as UW seniors who've publicly announced they will be returning for another season. - Casper Star-Tribune

  12/30/20 - Dontae CrowrSr/2022, Wyoming, 5-09, 178 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  University of Wyoming redshirt senior wide receiver Dontae Crow has entered his name into the transfer portal, Crow told WyoSports Monday night. Crow - who starred at Sheridan High and was born in Laramie - has one year of eligibility remaining. The NCAA decided before the 2020 season that players would not lose a year of eligibility, regardless of how many games were played, due to uncertainty amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The 5-foot-9, 178 pound Crow started all six games for UW in 2020 and finished fourth on the team in receptions, catching seven passes for 78 yards. He finishes his Cowboys career with 13 catches. - Wyoming Tribune Eagle
