for three years.WAITING GAME: Borgs has not made a start in his three seasons at Wyoming, and has a total of six tackles during that span. However, he ended spring camp at the top of the team's depth chart alongside Jordan Stanton at middle linebacker.HE SAID Nike Cortez Classic Og Nylon

played in 10 games on special teams but failed to register a tackle. Once a star at home, he was forced to come to terms with his role in a more challenging landscape."I was someone that my teams in Germany relied on. Coming from there to here, it was really tough," he said. "I thought I was pretty Nike Cortez Buy Online good, coming here. Then again, I realized after some time that everybody is good."Borgs kept pushing, but success was an elusive target. In his sophomore and junior seasons, he never made a start and compiled a total of six special teams tackles.At times, that belief was fractured. Football is a grueling sport, even more so when long practice hours result in disparaging losses and a sense of overwhelming powerlessness. When you keep putting quarters into a slot machine only to receive nothing in return, eventually you're going to stop playing."I saw a lot of frustration, definitely, especially during the [2013] season with how the season went along and we didn't do too well," former Wyoming and German national team teammate Justin Bernthaler said."He started questioning everything the coaches, himself. 'Why isn't he playing? He wants to help.' He didn't really understand it, because he thought he was doing all the right things."In those moments, Borgs reminded himself of the 45 minute drives and the countless desperate emails. He remembered why he came."There's always tough times, especially in the last two years when we had losing seasons," Borgs said. "You think, 'Maybe if I played, I could have made a little bit of an impact.' But in the end, it's the love you have for the game. That keeps you going."And for some reason, I feel like I'm meant to be here. I was meant to be in America and play American football and go to college here and live this lifestyle."

IT: "For some reason, I feel like I'm meant to be here.Alex Borgs believes he was meant to be here, doing this.Here, meaning Laramie. This, meaning football.He believed it when he started playing the sport in his home country of Germany at age 16, for a club that could only practice because it didn't have enough players to fill a roster. He believed it when he moved on to play for the Dsseldorf Panthers shortly after, and made the daily 45 minute drive from his home to participate in practices and games.He believed it when he started sending emails to every American university he could find. Few had ever heard of Alex Borgs, or witnessed even one of the 84 tackles he made for his club team in his senior season.Borgs, a dim star far off in the distance, teetered on the fringes of the Division I radar."It all started with myself, basically. I started writing emails to 60, 70 universities," Borgs said last week, talking over the bumping bass reverberating from speakers in Wyoming's Rochelle Athletics Center training facility. "I would get the emails out to recruiting coordinators, defensive coordinators, linebacker coaches, head coaches everyone."Nothing came back."The 6 foot 2, 232 pound linebacker, who was named the Defensive MVP of Germany's junior team in 2009, finally found his way to the states. One of his former coaches in Germany had played for Dave Christensen at Toledo years before. Borgs forwarded his tape and academic information to Christensen, and not long after, he received an offer from Wyoming.Borgs' belief in himself and his future carried him nearly 5,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean, away from his home and his family and toward a faraway goal.Three years later, he has barely played.What he found was a different game."It's really simple in Germany. You have two, three defenses and a couple calls with each. And that's what you do," Borgs said. "You come here and your playbook is about three inches thick. You have to learn it, you have to get it down. It's about reacting fast in your head."The adjustment was a dramatic one, like going from a bicycle with training wheels to the horsepower of a Harley Davidson motorcyle. Borgs was swimming in foreign waters, with play calls he had never heard before and complicated formations followed by audibles.In his freshman season in 2011, Borgs Nike Cortez Nylon Wolf Grey
