Christensen Says Wyoming has More Playmakers

LARAMIE - Wyoming coach Dave Christensen is expecting more excitement from his team this season despite starting a true freshman quarterback.

Christensen says the Cowboys have more playmakers than they've had over the past two seasons.

Freshman Brett Smith, of Salem, Ore., will lead the offense after winning the starting quarterback job during training camp.

Smith is only the third true freshman since 1974 to start at quarterback for the Cowboys. He is one of nine true freshmen who are expected to see playing time on offense, defense and special teams.

Big Horn couldn't capitalize on the resultant good field position as Big Horn's offense continued a string of turnovers for Greybull scores. In the end it was Greybull 38 - Big Horn 6.
