CASPER, Wyo. — Casper native Logan Wilson will play in the Senior Bowl, which features some of the top players in college football.

While University of Wyoming Cowboys fans may take an interest in the game, they aren’t the only people paying attention to Wilson.

“Wilson, a three-time team captain, could fit the mold of the players the Broncos have selected over the last two drafts,” Aric DiLalla, lead writer for the Denver Broncos, wrote on Tuesday, Jan. 21. “[John] Elway and Co. have seemingly favored seasoned players with a history of leadership.”

The senior linebacker was named “First Team All-American” for his accomplishments on the gridiron this season by Pro Football Focus, according to University of Wyoming Athletics.

“He is the first All-America honoree for Wyoming since Chase Roullier was named to the Second Team in 2016,” UW adds.

Wilson has also been named “Second Team All-American” by USA Today and “Third Team All-American” by the Associated Press this year.

In addition, the linebacker was one of six finalists for the 2019 Butkus Award.

Wilson is 6 foot 2 inches tall and weighs 250 pounds. He’s majoring in Kinesiology and Health Promotion. He grew up in Casper, playing high school football for the Natrona County High School Mustangs.
