Wyoming Evaluating Mountain Range Product

Colorado High Schools have been good to Wyoming Cowboy football through it's history, though 2010 might be a leaner year for D1 prospects in the state, according to some close to the program.

One player the Cowboys are evaluating in the state south of the Wyoming border is Mountain Range defensive end James Kelly, a 6-foot-3 product with plenty of potential for growth.

"I'm definitely considering staying close to home," said Kelly. "I got my sights on a couple of potentials in the area."

The Westminster product's character would fit well into the UW football program with his great attitude, hard work, and his intelligence.

Kelly also brings good athleticism and speed to the field while registering 24 sacks in his career.

The Cowboys will continue to evaluate Kelly because of his upside potential with a huge wing span and good quickness off the football.

He appears to have the makings of a good college pass rusher.

"My strengths is I'm quick off the football and use my smarts to work around the offenses," said Kelly. "I know that teams struggle moving around me because of length."

Kelly used his length to register 7 block kicks in three seasons and looks to play some offense in 2010 at split or tight end.
