Cherry Creek running back Hall commits to University of Wyoming for football
KUSA – Milo Hall is heading into Cowboys territory rather than Ram Country for the 2015-16 season. The Cherry Creek senior star running back, Milo Hall, committed to the University of Wyoming on a full ride scholarship to play football after previously residing as a preferred walk-on at Colorado State University.
Hall’s reason for leaving the Rams for the Cowboys was simple; Wyoming was placing more on the table. Hall stated, “Wyoming was offering a full ride scholarship and will utilize me and get me the ball more. They’d utilize me in open space and get me more carries.”
The Bruins running back also said he’d get the chance to get on special teams to return kicks and that they would use him in the slot and as a running back.
The Border War rivalry between the Rams and the Cowboys is prevalent now more than ever; however, it was a transfer that was understood by both parties. “I spoke with Coach English [CSU Linebackers Coach] and he was perfectly fine and understood the situation,” Hall said, “He said to do what’s best for you.”
When it comes to the big rivalry game, The Border War, between the two schools Milo said that it’s a special game that he has something to play for and will definitely play really hard at. “I’m looking forward to winning the Mountain West championship and winning a bowl game this next year,” Hall said.
“My high school coaches at Cherry Creek have been with me since I was a freshman and they have prepared me for college,” Milo said, “I talked with past college players from Cherry Creek and they said college will be easy because the coaches prepared us to be ready to go.”
In his senior season with the Bruins, Milo recorded 2,289 yards on 269 carries and lead his team to a 5A State Championship. Our 9NEWS Player of the Year Milo Hall will leave for Wyoming June 21st to get ready for the 2015-16 season with the Cowboys.
