Wyoming junior RB Brian Hill is "not just a power back," according to NFL.com's Chad Reuter, because "his footwork and vision allow him to sidestep defenders and find holes on the fly."

Reuter calls the rumbling 6-foot-1, 219-pounder a "beast between the tackles." Amid a terrible offense last year, Hill somehow managed to finish eighth in the country with 135.9 rushing yards per game. He accounted for over 40-percent of Wyoming's offensive production by rushing for 1,638 yards (5.8 YPC) and six touchdowns.

Wyoming junior RB Brian Hill said that he "got bigger" and "gained weight" during the offseason.

Hill is up about 10 pounds from last season, now checking in at 220. "I'm feeling stronger, and I'm feeling much faster," Hill said. "That's just my motto every offseason: to get bigger, faster, stronger." The 6-foot-1, now-220-pound workhorse indicated that he hopes to take less of a physical beating in 2016. In 2015, he accounted for almost 41% of Wyoming's offensive production in rushing for 1,638 yards (5.8 YPC) and six touchdowns. The touchdown total looks modest enough, but these things happen when you play for Wyoming.

Wyoming coach Craig Bohl said senior G Chase Roullier is an NFL talent and as good as he's coached.

"We think so," said Bohl when asked that exact question. "Chase has continued to improve. ... He’s got good feet, understands leverage. I think he’s on par with some of the guys we have coached that have played in the NFL, so we’re excited about him playing that same position." While at NDSU, Bohl coached center Rob Hunt (selected in the fifth round of the 2005 NFL Draft) and guard Billy Turner (third round in 2014). Roullier, a two-time All-Mountain West Conference pick, posted the No. 2 overall Pro Football Focus grade among guards last year. This summer, the 6-foot-4, 315-pound Roullier was named to the Outland Trophy Watch List. "I will say he’s definitely one of the better guards that I’ve had the privilege to coach," UW offensive line coach Scott Fuchs said.

Wyoming senior G Chase Roullier had the No. 2 overall Pro Football Focus grade among guards in 2015.

Not surprisingly, Roullier recently earned a spot on the Outland Trophy Watch List. "Whether locking onto defenders or clearing out play side in Wyoming’s power scheme, Roullier has done a fine job in the running game the last two years," wrote Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo. "He made great strides in pass protection as well." Roullier only surrendered six pressures last season, which earned him +8.5 grade (No. 13 in the nation). Pro Football Focus ranks him as the No. 52 returning player in all of college football.

Updating a previous story, the x-rays on the leg of Wyoming redshirt senior WR Jake Maulhardt came back negative.

Dodged a bullet there, Cowboys. It was initially feared that Maulhardt might have fractured his leg or ankle after he suffered an injury in Tuesday's practice, but his tests showed only a high ankle sprain. The 6-foot-6, 216-pound redshirt senior should be ready to roll come the start of the 2016 campaign. Last year, he caught 57 passes for 653 yards and eight scores.

Wyoming redshirt senior WR Jake Maulhardt left Tuesday's practice with a potentially fractured leg or ankle.

"I don’t think it’s that bad, but they’re going to do some X-rays, so we’re concerned about that," said HC Craig Bohl. Barring complications (or a deeper level of severity than expected), this likely won't keep Maulhardt from suiting up come the start of the 2016 campaign. Last year, the 6-foot-6, 216-pounder provided respectable production with 57 catches for 653 yards and eight touchdowns. He led the Cowboys in both receptions and touchdowns during the 2015 campaign.

Wyoming redshirt sophomore QB Aaron Young will transfer.

"After an unforgettable two years of creating lifelong friendships and memories, I have decided to transfer from the University of Wyoming," Young wrote on Twitter. A member of HC Craig Bohl's first recruiting class, Young spent 2015 buried on the depth chart behind senior Cameron Coffman and sophomores Josh Allen and Nick Smith. All three of those guys started at least one game, while Young didn't throw a pass, presumably prompting his decision to leave.

Wyoming sophomore RB Brian Hill was named the Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week.

Hill demolished UNLV to the tune of 232 yards and a touchdown on 35 carries in Saturday's 35-28 victory. It was his fourth effort of at least 200 rushing yards in what's been a stellar 2015 campaign. For the season, the 6-foot-1, 211-pound sophomore's rumbled for 1,631 yards and six touchdowns. The 1,631 yards are a single-season school record. His has been one of the more unheralded great rushing seasons on the books in 2015, due mostly to the fact that he plays for the 2-10 Cowboys.

Wyoming junior WR Tanner Gentry (shoulder) won't play against this year.

Gentry ranked No. 15 nationally with 678 receiving yards after seven games, at which point he suffered an AC joint separation and two tears in his right shoulder against Nevada on Oct. 17. "It’s been really frustrating," Gentry said. "This is my first major injury that I’ve ever had playing football where I’ve had to sit out games, so it’s kind of tough to deal with. I’m just trying to stay positive." Because another tear could permanently damage his shoulder and end his football career, the decision has been made to shut things down this season. "They just kind of told me that they thought six weeks was what it was going to be," Gentry said of the original prognosis. "We were just going to see how I progressed and if I was healing fast, then I would see if I could get out there or not and if it was safe for me to play or not." Added UW offensive coordinator Brent Vigen: "If it’s a situation where he can get hurt worse because he’s not quite

Wyoming junior WR Tanner Gentry (shoulder) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against San Diego State.

It will be his fourth consecutive game missed. Gentry suffered a dislocated AC joint back in Week 7 against Nevada. His recovery timeline has exhausted, so you can expect him back any week now. The Cowboys are excited for that. Gentry's 96.9 yards per game would rank No. 14 in the FBS if he'd played enough to qualify.

Wyoming sophomore RB Brian Hill rushed for 201 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 58-27 thrashing at the hands of Utah State.

Hill tried his darnedest, but the Cowboy defense just couldn't stop Utah State. This was his third 200-yard rushing game of the season. Wyoming's 1-8 anyway. Pity for the 6-foot-1, 211-pound sophomore, who has rumbled for 1,262 yards and four touchdowns across nine games. He deserves better than this.

Wyoming sophomore RB Brian Hill rushed for 76 yards on 23 carries in Saturday's 34-14 loss to Boise State.

Hill averaged a vanilla 3.3 YPC in Saturday's loss to the Broncos. This marked just the third time through eight games that the 6-foot-1, 211-pound sophomore's failed to rush for at least 100 yards. Overall, he's rushed for 1,061 yards and three touchdowns. Despite Hill's magnificent work, Wyoming sits at a sad panda 1-7. He's a reliable DFS runner in terms of yardage, but obviously, the lack of consistent touchdown production is troubling.

Wyoming senior QB Cameron Coffman left Saturday's contest against Boise State with an undisclosed injury.

Coffman headed for the locker room in the third quarter, with redshirt freshman Nick Smith taking over in his absence. The specific nature of Coffman's injury has yet to be made public, but expect further details to be provided in the coming days.

Wyoming senior QB Cameron Coffman completed 18-of-20 passes for 213 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 28-21 win over Nevada.

Coffman had excellent protection (sacked just once) and was able to survey the field with ease on the way to completing 90% of his passes. The 6-foot-2, 198-pound senior threw touchdown passes of 18, 27 and 12 yards--all in the second quarter of play. He's now thrown for 1,504 yards with a 14/6 TD/INT ratio.

Wyoming sophomore RB Brian Hill received 33 carries and rushed for 188 yards in Saturday's 28-21 win over Nevada.

Hill averaged a healthy 5.7 yards per carry. Despite the season-high 33 carries, he was held out of the end zone for the fifth time in seven games this season. It would be nice to see the 6-foot-1, 211-pound sophomore score more often than he does, but there's no quibbling with his 985 rushing yards.
