LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The preseason college football awards have begun for the 2010 season. Phil Steele's 2010 College Football Preview magazine released its All-Mountain West Conference preseason selections, including 11 Wyoming Cowboys who were selected to one of four teams.
The Second Team was dominated by four Cowboy defenders -- senior free safety Chris Prosinski, junior defensive end Gabe Knapton, junior cornerback Tashaun Gipson and sophomore strong safety Shamiel Gary. Also featured on the Second Team were senior wide receiver David Leonard, who was selected as both a Second Team receiver and punt returner, and junior punter Austin McCoy.
The Wyoming Cowboys will kick off the 2010 season on Saturday, Sept. 4 versus Southern Utah in a game that will kick off at 7 p.m. in Wyoming's War Memorial Stadium.
