2020 Mountain West Football Top 50 Players: #47, Wyoming QB Sean Chambers
The Cowboys quarterback has made a huge impact with his legs over two seasons and is back on our list of the Mountain West’s best players.
There’s no quarterback like him.
Under Craig Bohl, the Wyoming Cowboys have made themselves into a rugged foe that no one in the Mountain West relishes facing and perhaps no one has embodied that spirit over the past two seasons than the next player on our countdown of the conference’s best players.
Sean Chambers has only played in 12 games so far in his collegiate career, but it’s hard to argue that the Kerman, California native had an outsized impact in that abbreviated time. He completed only 43% of his passes in 2019 and owns a career 45.9% completion rate, but he’s also averaged a healthy 8.1 yards per attempt and sports a 10-to-3 touchdown-to-interception ratio.
Additionally, Chambers has proven to be a scoring machine by accounting for 12 more touchdowns as a runner, including ten in 2019, while averaging six yards per carry over 149 career attempts. Keep in mind with the latter figure that while he still has a ways to go to reach the benchmark, just six players in Mountain West history with 300 carries have bested 6.0 YPC.
That may be an unorthodox path to fame for a quarterback, but Chambers is well on his way if he can avoid the injury issues that cut short both 2018 and 2019. If he’s healthy for an entire season? Watch out.
