The Wyoming Cowboy football season kicks off in 10 days. The intensity level clicked upward this week. The first scrimmage was on Saturday. The second half of fall camp started yesterday.

Head Coach Craig Bohl seemed impressed with starting quarterback Andrew Peasley after Saturday’s scrimmage. Coach Bohl said Peasley is making good decisions at clutch times.

Sophomore quarterback Evan Svoboda is sitting in the second spot on the depth chart after a strong spring outing. Svoboda played his freshman season at Snow College in Ephram, Utah, after a outstanding senior season in high school.

The Cowboys are without a familiar face on offense. Coach Bohl said the offense is adjusting to losing their projected starting running back Dawaiian McNeeley. The 208-pound junior went down with a season-ending torn ACL last week.

The running back depth was already an issue with Northern Illinois transfer Harrison Waylee who is still recovering from knee surgery over the summer. DQ James is still not quite ready from his torn ACL injury. Coach Bohl will be forced to test some unfamiliar names on the roster.

Options for the first few games will come down to some new players like redshirt freshman LJ Richardson, Sam Scott and Jamari Ferrell.

Coach Bohl said Ferrell has more to learn but said that the junior running back wearing #32 showed good competency in Saturday’s scrimmage.

Much of last week’s practice was focused on the opening game against Texas Tech in two weeks, and Coach Bohl said he believes Peasley and the Cowboys will play well in the season opener at Laramie.
