The Wyoming Cowboys entered their second week of fall practice on yesterday.  Head coach Craig Bohl was pleased with the performance of the Cowboy offensive line in a live goal-line period.  Bohl said another focus of Monday’s practice was to develop depth at several positions, including defensive line, wide receiver, linebacker and center.

Here are some notes from Monday’s practice:

Junior Marcus Epps returned an interception for a touchdown early in practice during team drills. He tied for the team lead with three interceptions a season ago. He returned those interceptions for 94 yards including a touchdown at Eastern Michigan.

Sophomore cornerback Tyler Hall also picked up a fumble recovery during the team portion of practice. He will be in the hunt for playing time in a deep defensive backfield for the Pokes.  Hall came out of 2017 spring practice listed No. 1 at one of the cornerback spots for the Pokes.

Junior defensive end Kevin Prosser continued his strong play during camp. He was disruptive in the backfield the entire practice. He led the Pokes with 6.5 sacks last season and 11 tackles for loss.

Sophomore Pahl Schwab and junior Brinkley Jolly continued battling at the offensive tackle position for the Cowboys. The duo saw action last season and provide depth on the edge for UW.  The Cowboys return their starting left tackle in junior Zach Wallace and starting right tackle Ryan Cummings, a senior.

True freshman center Logan Harris also took some reps at center on Monday. The Torrington, Wyo., native helped spring Milo Hall free for a 40-yard run during team drills. Harris may add depth to the center position for the Pokes. Sophomore Gavin Rush, as well as fellow Nebraska native Patrick Arnold also continued to see time at center in Monday’s practice.

Sophomore wide receiver Austin Conway continues his solid route running and receiving. He caught a touchdown from Allen, as the junior quarterback threaded the needle through two defenders.

 Quoting Head Coach Craig Bohl:

“We did some goal-line work today, and were pleased with some of the things we were able to do on offense,” said Bohl.  “We were getting some movement up front, which was encouraging.

“Defensively, we continue to move forward in developing depth.  We are going to take a hard look at Ravontae Holt.  We as a staff think he’s got some really good ability as a defensive tackle.

“Milo Hall continues to show some good things, and Jared Scott is making some plays out there as a young receiver.  Not only are we trying to increase our competency and improve our offense, defense and kicking game, but we’re looking to find some depth at certain spots.  It’s unrealistic for us to think we will go through the schedule we have with just 11 starters on both sides of the ball.  We’re going to need to develop some depth, and that was a point of emphasis today.”
