Christopherson

From 1991-94, Ryan Christopherson was the face of UW football. A Glendale, Ariz., product, he was one of the most prolific running backs in Wyoming history. Christopherson finished his illustrious career with 2,906 yards, which ranks second in UW rushing history. As a team captain during his senior season of 1994, he set the UW single-season rushing record with 1,455 yards while also scoring 10 touchdowns. His 244 yards gained against UTEP during that season is the second best single-game effort in Cowboy history. He owns the single-season record for total carries at 300, and for carries in a game, 37, versus Northeast Louisiana in 1994. He is only the second running back in Cowboy history to gain more than 1,000 yards twice during his career. Christopherson was an All-Western Athletic Conference First Team selection as a senior. He was a four-time WAC Scholar-Athlete and four-time Academic All-WAC First Team pick. He also was a First Team Academic All-American as a senior, and a Second Team honoree as a junior. He is a 2006 University of Wyoming Athletics Hall of Fame inductee. Christopherson played in the NFL for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos.
