Milo Hall, who was the Denver Post Player of the Year, CHSAA’s 5A player of the year and leader of the Cherry Creek High School Bruins, will be signing with Wyoming University. Hall was originally going stay in-state and go to Colorado State University as a preferred walk-on but will instead accept a full-ride scholarship to play in Laramie.
Hall had scholarship offers from Northern Colorado, New Mexico State, and Idaho.
“I just felt like I will be in a better position to win long-term at Wyoming,” said Hall, a consensus three-star recruit. “I felt like Wyoming was the better place for me. At first, I was choosing CSU for everyone else, but I felt like Wyoming was the better place for myself and that’s the most important part.”
“They loved him,” Bruins coach Dave Logan said of the Cowboys.
“(Logan) just told me he’s excited for me to get up there and to utilize me as a running back, on third-down,” Hall said. “He’s going to use me on special teams. I could be used in the slot sometimes. I’m OK with it. Just try to get me the ball in open space and try to win. That’s all that matters. Anything I can help the team to win.”
Despite his rather small stature, 5’8″ 175 pounds, Hall had a fantastic 2014 season. He rushed for 29 touchdowns on 2,289 yards. He helped Cherry Creek beat the defending champs Valor Christian twice in the same year. The second was for the 5A state championship played at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
In the championship game Hall ran the ball 28 times for 218 yards and two touchdowns. His second touchdown set up the game-winning two point conversion in the fourth quarter.
“We’re really happy for Milo and his family,” Logan said. “And the University of Wyoming just got a very outstanding young man and a very good football player.”
