Cowboys Practiced in Full Pads for First Time Friday morning

 Laramie, Wyo. (Aug. 14, 2015) —  Friday saw the Wyoming Cowboy Football team practice in full pads for the first time in fall camp.  The Pokes held a spirited two and one half hour practice on the grass practice field south of War Memorial Stadium.  The practice saw the No. 1 and No. 2 units go against one another in 11-on-11 situations for much of the practice.  Due to it being the first day in full pads, the contact was limited to ‘thudding up’, meaning players were hit but not taken to the ground.
