Some tough news for the Cowboys as it appears that sophomore kicker Daniel Sullivan suffered a stroke last week. He was attending a kicking camp in Wisconsin when it occurred. It appeared to be a very serious situation but looks like he has had a remarkable recovery.

Coach Christensen acknowledged that Sullivan had a "medical condition"today. He did say he expected him to be ready for the the season opener against Texas. The school never fully details injuries or the health of players to the media. Sullivan confirmed on his twitter account that he is heading back to Seattle. He will visit with doctors there to undergo further evaluation. He has already met with the Wyoming neurologist.

Certainly wish him all the best in his recovery. Certainly scary when something like this happens to someone so young.

As a freshmen Sullivan had an up and down first season for the Pokes. He has spent plenty of time during the off-season working on his game. He used most of his spring break to travel to Texas for a kicking clinic, then went to the Wisconsin. He is certainly motivated and can't wait to see him in the Brown and Gold again.
