Cheyenne, Wyo.- East defeated Laramie 37-21 on Friday to advance to the semi-finals.
The T-birds were led by quarterback Chance Aumiller, who saw his second start of the season against the Plainsmen.
"I think he's starting to understand things a little bit more," said Chad Goff, East's head football coach.
"He'll come to practice early and stay after, come early and stay late type of thing, just to get those extra reps. I think he's amped for this game as well," said Goff.
Aumiller has another chance to impress as the team takes on Natrona on Friday in the semi-finals.
