2018 Mountain West Football 50 Best Players: #9, Wyoming LB Logan Wilson
The Cowboys junior is next on our list of Mountain West football’s top players.
What’s new peaks can the Wyoming native reach?
Mountain West Wire’s countdown of the conference’s best players returns once more to the stout Wyoming defense, where Logan Wilson comes in at #9, the highest-ranked linebacker in this year’s top 50.
Coming off a Freshman All-American season in 2016, Wilson did not disappoint in his sophomore performance last fall. He finished with 119 tackles, two forced fumbles, a sack and an interception, securing a spot on the second-team all-conference defense.
2018 will be Wilson’s third straight year anchoring the Cowboys at middle linebacker, and though it’s hard to imagine how his unit could improve upon allowing a conference-best 17.5 points per game and 4.67 yards per play, bet on Wilson to once again have a major impact on Wyoming’s fortunes this fall.
