First Scrimmage is tommorow

After a week of practice it is time to stop drills and see what some of these players can really do. Wyoming will have it's first scrimmage on Friday, August 13th starting at 8:45am.

Check out Robert Gagliardi who will be posting live during the scrimmage.

So what are we hoping to learn from this first scrimmage?

Here are a few key things to focus on:

The defensive line. The bookends are set at DE with Greg Knapton and Josh Biezuns. The backup DE spots are up for grabs with RS Freshman Mark Willis having the inside track to backup Knapton.

Who will fill the middle of the line? Alex Stover was expected to start but is already hitting the medical tent with his recurring groin issues. Mike Purcell, Patrick Mertens and Burbin are fighting for a starting spot at DT.

Will any of the newcomers make an impact on the line? Kurt Taufa'asau has been getting some reps with the second team. There hasn't been much news on BJ Sumter or Tyler Strong yet. Sonny Puletasi and Riley Lange are two freshman DE's that have been staying low on the radar so far.

With David Tooley gone that leaves T.J. Smith to take over as the #1 TE. Who will take over the #2 spot. Jonathon Aiken has the size at 6'4 208lbs but can he block when needed?

There hasn't been much news on the O-Line so far. Freshman Skyler Hinton and Justin Dire have been seeing some time with the second team at center guard respectively.

Who sees the most reps at running back. Kankolongo will miss the opener against Southern Utah but does that make Alexender the starter in week 2 as well?
