Local High School Football Players Advancing Their Playing Careers [AUDIO]

by Keith Kelley–4 Feb ’15

Several Capital City football players are continuing their football careers, whether it be on full scholarship, or the preferred walk-on route.  As reported in early December, Cheyenne East’s Tevis Bartlett signed his national letter of intent to play football at Washington.  Also, East’s Jacob Bobenmoyer is headed to Northern Colorado as a preferred walk-on.  Bobenmoyer had 79 tackles and one interception for the Thunderbirds.

East athlete Ben Wisdorf, who also excels in the pool, will be a preferred walk-on for the Wyoming Cowboy football team.  Wisdorf had 49 receptions for nearly 600 yards and four touchdowns, and also ran for a TD.  He was also very good on defense, making 50 tackles, recovering two fumbles and picking off a pass this season.  Wisdorf, who is looking at going pre-med, had plenty of division two offers to play football, but says it’s been a line-long dream to play at Wyoming, but says it wasn’t a big deal for him to walk-on rather than be a scholarship player.

Over at Cheyenne Central, wide receiver Tayton Montgomery will be a preferred walk on at Wyoming as well.  Montgomery caught 52 passes for over 600 yards and four scores, while rushing for over 200 yards and three touchdowns for the Indians.  Montgomery doesn’t have a chip on his shoulder by not being a scholarship player.  He said that Wyoming fit best for hiim and he looks forward to competing for a spot.

Also, East’s Michael Downey will attend the University of Wyoming to run cross country/track and field for the Cowboys.
