CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now)- Last season, Wyoming Cowboys quarterback, Sean Chambers, tore his meniscus in his left knee in the eighth game of the season against Nevada, marking his second season-ending injury during his tenure at Wyoming.
"I knew that I had a long road ahead of me of rehab, treatment, and fortunately enough I’m nearing the end of that road," Chambers said.
Chambers threw for 915 yards, seven touchdowns, rushing for 567 and 10 touchdowns, in eight games of the 2019 football season. He had surgery on his knee in November and announced via twitter late April that the doctors cleared him to play, saying: "Just got word from the Doc... finally cleared!! Thanks to God!! Season can't come soon enough... time to finish what we started."
Due to the closure of campus, the team has been given workouts to do on their own so they can be ready to possibly compete this upcoming fall.
"I think we're just preparing as if we're going to have a season or our first game on September 5th. It's a little tough because we're not all together in the same place. I don't think that's stopping us from preparing the way that we should. We know what we want out of this season, we have a goal in mind and we know what we need to do to reach that goal, so I think we're preparing as if we're going to get the opportunity to get that goal."
He is approaching his sophomore season and will compete for a starting job with redshirt freshman, Levi Williams. It is safe to say that Chambers is eager to get back on the field with his teammates, and once again putting on the brown and gold.
"There's nothing like college football, there's nothing like Saturdays in the fall,” Chambers said. “Getting back and playing in front of the war hopefully with a full crowd this fall that's really what I’m looking forward to and seeing what we can accomplish this year. I think we have a really good team coming back and I think we can do some special things this year."
Wyoming's first game is scheduled on September 5, 2020 against Weber State at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie, Wyoming.
