Growing up in Wyoming means hearing about the Border War from an early age. For some young football players in the Cowboy State, playing against CSU in Laramie is a dream. For standout offensive lineman Logan Harris, it’s a dream come true. The senior will play his final Border War tomorrow. The 6’3″, 310 lb guard from Torrington knows what the tradition is all about. Harris said winning tomorrow and capturing the boot would something extra special.
Head Coach Craig Bohl credited the offensive line this week for stepping up their game against San Jose State last Saturday. Although the Cowboys lost, the offensive line showed improvement. Bohl said it was the best the O-line played all year.
Harris agreed. The big, hulking guard said the entire offensive line was unhappy with some of their showing early in the season. They’ve spent the last two weeks in practice working to improve individual techniques, and learning what happens when you execute correctly, whether it’s pumping your feet, keeping your elbows inside or explode the target with eyes and thumbs up.
Coach Bohl promises a great game tomorrow, a memorable game. He says CSU has some great playmakers and they will challenge Wyoming on both sides of the ball.
There’s some of your mutual respect that you expect from a venerable head coach who knows you don’t want to give the other team locker-room motivation. But come, it’s the Border War. How about some smack talk?
The Cowboys don’t need to stop for gas. Their tanks are full. The Border War kicks off at 1:30 Saturday. The pregame show gets underway on Bigfoot 99 at noon.
