COLSON COON (NLI) – Sheridan Bronc football player Colson Coon Wyoming’s first two-time winner of the Gatorade player of the year award, has made his decision on where he will play in college, and he will possibly play along side his older brother.

Coon has signed his letter of intent to play at Montana State University, after leading the Broncs to back-to-back state championships.

In his senior season for the Broncs, he ran for 2,195 yards and scored 34 touchdowns on the ground, caught 2 others, and threw one as well.

He also set a Wyoming 11-man football single game rushing record, with 517 yards in the state semi-finals.

His older brother Garrett, is a Gatorade winner himself and also helped the Broncs win two state championships he will be a Redshirt Sophomore next season for the Cats.

Colson says football runs in the family and Garrett had a little bit of influence in his decision.

Colson said he is considering a future career as a chiropractor, a physical therapist, and athletic trainer, or something along those


He adds he had talked to the University of Wyoming, Chadron state, Montana Tech and North Dakota state among other places.

He was about to commit to Mississippi State, but after the sudden passing Head coach Mike Leach, and the subsequent changes in the coaching staff, he says he lost contact with the Bulldog program, and had a change of heart.
