CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Four high school players from Casper high schools recently signed to play football with Chadron State College. Three were from Kelly Walsh and one from Natrona County.

Chadron State will have over 20 players from Wyoming on its football roster next fall.

“Wyoming’s just a really big state that we attack every year and try to make sure we do a really good job of getting the best players out of there every year,” said Chadron State College Defensive Coordinator and Linebackers Coach Clint Sasse.

Sasse in charge of recruiting the entire state of Wyoming at Chadron.

He said that Casper has always treated Chadron “well,” so it’s “high on the list” every year of places that he needs to check out while on the recruiting trail.

“If you just look at Casper and kind of the history of both those schools, they’re putting out college football players every year,” said Sasse. “There’s not a lot of places that are like that every single year where they’re having somebody sign somewhere.”

He attributed that player development to the coaching at Natrona County and Kelly Walsh over the years. He said Casper kids are “coachable” and usually “ready to contribute early” in their college careers.

“Wyoming kids love coming to Chadron, and we love having them.”
