UW Football looking forward to having the fans back in 2021
At Thursday’s University of Wyoming Athletics Summer Bash, UW Head Football Coach Craig Bohl said “it’s time to get back to normal” for the football team and its fans.
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The University of Wyoming Athletics Summer Bash tour is in full swing with its first stop happening in Casper on Thursday. It’s a chance for fans to meet and interact with UW coaches and student-athletes.
It was a chance for those from UW to see fans for the first time in a while after soldiering through limited attendance during the 2020-21 school year.
Craig Bohl, UW’s head football coach, said these trips are great to interact with the fans, but it’s also good for the football program.
“While this is not an active recruiting tour, but the more we spread our name out there are good football players that have come from Casper, we have them on the team right now, we’re gonna have some in the future,” said Bohl at the stop in Casper Thursday.
Bohl also said he was looking forward to seeing the fans packed into War Memorial Stadium this fall.
“2020 was a bad movie. I mean it was a bad movie. It started out bad, but we learned a lot from it that’s all behind us,” said Bohl. “I think we’ll have a great crowd against Montana State. I know we had a great crowd during spring football. It’s time to get back to normal Poke fans.”
Garrett Crall, a defensive lineman heading into his final go-around with the Pokes, echoed Bohl’s sentiments about seeing the fans again this fall.
“It was really weird last year, and we got a heckuva team working out in Laramie right now, so I’m excited for that (the fans),” said Crall talking about what he was looking forward to this fall.
The Summer Bash continues in Cheyenne at Lions Park on Saturday from 4-7 P.M, and the Cowboys kick off in Laramie this fall at War Memorial Stadium on September 4th against Montana State.
