2013-2014 Graduate Update

 The 2013-2014 Graduates from Western Wyoming Community College that went on to play at 4 year schools were Bernard Manuel at Dixie State (UT), Nate Pierce at La Sierra (CA) and Vitor Nazareth at Benedictine College (KS).

All three former Mustangs were hit with the injury bug and were all destined to take a red-shirt year as they started their 4 year college career.  Vitor saw his red-shirt taken away as he recovered from injury and his team needed him to fill in as an outside back  during the final month of the season.  We wish a speedy recovery to all the players and many more great matches in their futures on the pitch.
