Evan Svoboda walked into Spring Camp in Laramie as Wyoming’s #1 quarterback.

Svoboda showed his toughness and cool-headedness when he substituted for former QB Andrew Peasley during the Arizona Bowl on December 30th.  Peasley has since graduated. The job is Svoboda’s, he completed 1 of 2 passes for 16 yards and carried the ball five times for 26 yards, including Wyoming’s lone touchdown of the game midway through the fourth quarter.

A worried Keith Kelly and Kevin McKinney had the call as the Cowboys clawed their way back into the game on New Years weekend.

With the injured Peasley watching from the sidelines, Svoboda drove Wyoming into position for John Hoyland to kick the winning 24-yard field goal as time ran out. True grit.

The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Svoboda reportedly started camp last week in good command, making accurate, powerful throws through the first several practices in Laramie.

Now the question is, “Who’s Svoboda’s backup?” Head coach Jay Sawvel talked about his choices this week.

Jaden Clemmons, #7, is a 6-1, 212 pound senior who rushed for 10 yards on two rushes in the Arizona Bowl. He joined the team after exiting Utah in 2021 but did appear in any games until last season.

Kaden Andersen is a redshirt freshman from Southlake, Texas. The 6-4, 223-pound Anderson was ranked No. 71 on Dallas Morning News top 100 quarterbacks list in the Lone Star State for 2023.

The Cowboys will hold an open practice in the Indoor Practice Facility tomorrow starting at 11 a.m.
