LARAMIE, Wyo. -

New-look offense

The University of Wyoming football team will unveil its new-look, pro-style offense Aug. 30 in the season opener versus Montana. The architect of that attack is offensive coordinator Brent Vigen, who has been encouraged by the progress made by his squad from spring drills to the end of fall camp.

Led by senior quarterback Colby Kirkegaard, senior wide receiver and Biletnikoff Award candidate Dominic Rufran and the running back duo of junior Shaun Wick and redshirt sophomore D.J. May, the offense has come together over the last few months. The offensive line is bolstered by the return of veteran leadership with senior tackle Connor Rains, junior guard Jake Jones and junior center Rafe Kiely. Sophomore tackle Nathan Leddige and sophomore guard Chase Roullier also gained starting experience in 2013. Depth will be provided by sophomore guard Sam Hardy and junior tackle Austin Traphagan.

The receiving corps has an abundance of experience, joining Rufran are fellow seniors Jalen Claiborne, Trey Norman and Keenan Montgomery; and sophomores Tanner Gentry and Jake Maulhardt. From the tight end spot, senior J.D. Krill has performed well during fall camp.
