UW vs Wofford

Wyoming free safety Andrew Wingard shakes hands with Wofford players following their game Sept. 15 at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie.

LARAMIE — Andrew Wingard will play at least one more college game before getting his shot at the next level.

Wingard has accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game, where he’ll join some of college football’s top seniors to showcase their talents in front of NFL scouts. The 94th annual game will be played Jan. 19 in St. Petersburg, Florida, and be televised on the NFL Network.

Wingard has put together one of the best careers in Wyoming history during his four years with the Cowboys. The senior safety started it with three straight 100-tackle seasons and is tied with former New Mexico standout Carmen Messina atop the Mountain West’s all-time tackles list (454).

The 6-foot, 214-pounder is the second-leading tackler in program history. He earned first-team all-MW honors this season with 87 tackles and two interceptions.

Wingard is the second Wyoming player in as many days to accept an invite to a postseason all-star game, joining defensive end Carl Granderson (Senior Bowl).
