|Eric Walker, Devian Kurete and Kyle Mivshek help out the RSSA U12 WWCC Academy (April 16th)|
Chandler Young a soon to be sophomore at Western Wyoming has signed another National Letter of intent to play his sophomore season for the Red and Black. Young was a 2013 graduate from Layton High and helped lead them to a Region title and a run in the 5A Utah playoffs. His freshman year he split time between an outside defender and a center defensive midfielder. He had 10 shots, a goal and 9 starts. Chandler will more than likely be used primarily as a midfielder both center defensive mid and attacking mid during his sophomore year. Chandler has a competitive spirit and will to win which helps him and his team to succeed. We expect great things from Chandler as we watch him mature both on and off the field and play his best for the Mustangs.

The second match of the day was against the host Utah State Aggies. Rico Mendez netted his second goal of the spring in the 3rd minute from a Vitor Nazareth assist. The lead stuck for the rest of the half and the Mustangs went into the break with a 1 - 0 lead. The Aggies played a little better in the second half and the Mustangs a little too confident which lead to the Mustangs conceding two goals and lose the lead 2 to 1. Colton Cottrell switched from a center back to a forward with about 7 minutes in the match to try to find the equalizer. His pressure helped as Tyler Trumble was fouled in the penalty box and Colton Cottrell nailed the penalty kick with 3 minutes to play. The Mustangs almost stole a victory on the road when a Rico Mendez pass was kicked by Devian Kurete into the back post with seconds left in the match. The match after 90 minutes ended in a tie. For fun the two teams decided to go to penalty kicks, Eric Walker was the WWCC keeper. The penalty kicks went for 9 rounds with USU converting on 8 of the kicks and WWCC only 7. Kickers for Western were; Colton Cottrell, Devian Kurete, Brock Mosier, Vitor Nazareth, Chris Elizondo, Kyle Seljaas

Colton Cottrell a graduate from Davis High has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the 2014 - 2015 Western Wyoming Mustangs. Colton is an extremely versatile player as he played almost everywhere on the pitch for his high school team and his club team. Colton served an LDS mission to Brazil after high school. Colton has joined the Mustangs and enrolled at Western Wyoming for the spring semester of 2014. Colton has excelled at center back this spring but has the skills to play a forward, midfielder or an outside back at the collegiate level. We are very excited to have such a great player and person to join us on our quest for another Region IX title and our march for a NJCAA title.
Brock Mosier a rising sophomore who played for the 2013 WWCC Mustang has recently signed his National Letter of Intent to play for the 2014 version of the Western Wyoming team. Brock had a very eventful freshman campaign with 20 starts, 20 shots, 4 goals and an assist. Brock has continued his stellar play as we have trained this spring. Brock has been named as a spring captain for the Mustangs. We expect a superb sophomore season for Brock at either an outside mid or attacking mid. Well done Brock!
Devian Kurete a soon to be sophomore from Evanston Wyoming has decided to resign for his second season as a Mustang. Kurete's freshman campaign has riddled with nagging injuries but was still able to get 2 starts. Devian is a true forward and has shown the knack to finish in front of goal so far this spring in training sessions. The sky is the limit for this young man and we expect great things as he remains healthy and plays to the potential that he has. Congrats go out to Devian.
