Top 50 Mountain West Players: No. 27 is Shaun Wick from Wyoming

New, 1 comment

Senior workhorse running back Shaun Wick of Wyoming enters the Mountain West Top 50 players list at number 27. Wick, looks to lead a talented backfield for the Cowboys as they enter the 2015 season with high hopes under second year head coach Craig Bohl.

Shaun Wick is the leader of a loaded backfield for the Wyoming Cowboys and ranks 27th in the Mountain West Top 50 list. Head Coach Craig Bohl loves a run heavy offense, and Wick figures to be the lead dog in the backfield. Wick, who missed time with a broken hand, rushed for 753 yards in 2014. The 5'10 215 lb. senior has been the top rusher for the Cowboys since his breakout season in 2013. As a sophomore, Wick rushed for 234 yards against San Jose State. A healthy season for Wick could mean big things for Wyoming in the loaded Mountain division.
