Tracy Ringolsby

It did not take long for Tommy Wroblewski, a multi-sport athlete at St. Paul (Neb.) High School, to say yes to Wyoming football.

First contacted by the Cowboys in late September, and offered a scholarship on Sept. 22, Wroblewski is the eighth scholarship player to commit to Wyoming football.

He announced his decision on twitter Tuesday night.


St. Paul's Tommy Wroblewski saw all he needed to see on a campus visit to Wyoming earlier this month. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound senior announced his commitment to the Cowboys on Tuesday.

"They treat their players amazingly. The football facilities are awesome and I feel like everyone in that program is bought into winning," Wroblewski told "Craig Bohl is a good coach and I want to play for him."

He will play safety at Wyoming. In nine games this season, Wroblewski is second on the Wildcats in total tackles (54) and is tied for the team lead with five pass breakups. On offense, he leads the team in receiving with 457 yards and six touchdowns on 13 receptions.

"Tommy is an absolute worker. He works for a local farmer whenever he is not at school. He is super talented and is a multi-sport athlete," St. Paul coach Rusty Fuller said. "His athleticism is tremendous as he can play multiple positions for Wyoming. Great team leader, cares about his teammates and wants to win."

Other schools showing interest included Nebraska, Northwestern, FCS school Northern Iowa and South Dakota State, and Division II schools Wayne State, Chadron State and Sioux Falls along with NAIA power Morningside.

He is the Cowboys' third known scholarship commitment from Nebraska, joinng defensive end Tyce Westland from Pleaston and linebakcer Sam Scott from Skutt Catholic in Omaha.

Linebacker Tommy McEvoy, a linebacker from Clarkson, Neb., has announced he will be a preferred walk-on to Wyoming.
