The Mountain West Conference announced on Monday that Wyoming senior quarterback Cameron Coffman was named as the Mountain West’s offensive player of the week. Coffman turned in a standout performance on Saturday on the Cowboys’ first win of the season versus Nevada. Coffman, a transfer from Indiana starting his first season at Wyoming, started the game off on fire, going 9 for 9. His 10th pass was dropped, a very catchable ball.
Coffman finished the day 18/20 passing for 213 yards and three touchdowns and no interceptions. He also rushed for 32 yards. This is the first time Coffman has won the player of the week award as a member of the Cowboys. Coffman’s 228.96 passer rating is the highest in the Mountain West by a quarterback this season.
Coffman leads the Mountain West in passing yards per game (250.7), passing efficiency (153.8), completion percentage (66.1), passing touchdowns (14) and in total offense (237.2). Needless to say, Coffman is having a terrific year for the Cowboys, despite their 1-6 record on the season.
Coffman, a native of Peculiar, MO, ranks very high on the national passing charts as well. He ranks 18 in passing touchdowns, 21 in passing efficiency, and 33 in passing yards.
The Cowboys will face Boise State on ESPN2 on Saturday, a kickoff at 8:15pm from Albertson’s Stadium.
