2020 Mountain West Football Top 50 Players: #21, Wyoming C Keegan Cryder
The Cowboys center is the top-rated player at his position on our list of Mountain West football’s best players in 2020.
The best at what he does this year.
An offense that wants to punch opponents in the mouth like the Wyoming Cowboys do never amounts to much without a strong offensive line to lead the way, which is why the next player on our countdown of the conference’s top athletes is especially impactful.
Keegan Cryder topped his Freshman All-American campaign in 2018 with an even better one in 2019. He was one of two Pokes linemen to start every game, allowing just one sack and accruing only one penalty in over 800 snaps at center to earn a spot on the all-conference second team.
Still just a junior, Cryder is now the tip of the spear for one of the Mountain West’s deepest units anywhere. For an offense ready to run the ball right at their foes, his contributions may not be easy to notice but will go a long way toward helping Wyoming compete for a division crown.
