Former University of Wyoming football player Weston Johnson is facing mounting medical expenses in his battle against cancer, and football fans across the state are doing what they can to help.

As a senior, Johnson was a captain of Wyoming's 2009 New Mexico Bowl Championship team, and in 2011 he served as a graduate assistant coach. Jared Petrino is events director for UW athletics. He says Johnson was a natural leader who was liked by team mates and admired by fans.
