Pokes Add Kicker, Two Offensive Lineman Leave
Here is a roster tidbit from the Denver Post:
Josh Fralick of Chatfield will be a walk-on for Wyoming. The place-kicker and punter will give it a shot at both positions to earn a roster spot for the Cowboys. Fralick’s leg strength was good — he was 29-of-33 in extra points and 5-of-9 in field goals, including a game-winning, 46-yarder in the final seconds to defeat rival Columbine.
His 50 kickoffs resulted in 31 touchbacks. Wyoming, if you recall, downed Fresno State 35-28 in the New Mexico Bowl, one of the better offerings that capped the past college season.
This is certainly good news! Do you remember the days when every kick-off went out of the back of the end zone? I sure do! Those days need to come back, it is pretty pathetic when we are at 7,220 feet and the kicker can’t even get the ball inside the 10 yard line. I know the kickoffs were moved back 5 yards but Wyoming should always have a kicker who can put the ball deep. Hopefully this Fralick kid has the leg to compete this fall and upgrade our “special forces”.
UPDATE: Offensive Lineman Nick Puetz and Scott Criss have left the team after spring ball. Read more about this news here: Wyo Trib Eagle.
