Kirkegaard Is Ready To Lead The Pokes

Aug 25, 2014

When the Wyoming Cowboys football team plays Saturday, the Pokes will have a new starting quarterback. While Colby Kirkegaard has played in several games…it will be a new experience for him to be start the season as the number one quarterback.   

Coaches say that Kirkegaard has played with a lot of poise during fall camp and they hope that continues. While he is excited about being the starter, Kirkegaard says he doesn’t feel any pressure, because it will be a team effort.

“These are some of my best friends on the team here, so not a lot of pressure, I know they have my back and I have their back and we are working towards the same goal.”

Wyoming has changed its offense to resemble most NFL teams. Kirkegaard says that will help balance the offensive attack. Wyoming opens its season Saturday at home against Montana.
