BIRTHDAY GIFT: Freshman offensive guard Richard Bettencourt waited for his mother's birthday last fall to announce his verbal commitment to Wyoming.WAITING GAME: After former Wyoming coach Dave Christensen was fired, Bettencourt had to wait for a period of time to see if his scholarship offer at Wyoming would be honored. Eventually, it was.HE SAID IT: "My mom's birthday was like two weeks away, and I was thinking that would be a great birthday present for her, to come downstairs and say, 'Yeah, I just got off the phone with Wyoming. Nike Cortez Womens Foot Locker I'm going to be a Cowboy.Richard Bettencourt made sure his mother's most recent birthday was a memorable one.It was Oct. 2, 2013, and the 6 foot 3, 284 pound offensive guard had been sitting on a scholarship offer from Wyoming for several months. After visiting Laramie during the summer, Bettencourt knew he wanted to spend his next four years there.But he didn't commit. Not yet.Instead, Bettencourt continued to attend recruiting camps and talk to other teams. But all the while, the issue was hardly in doubt."I pretty much knew I wanted to play here when they offered me," Bettencourt said.The Meridian High School (Idaho) standout, who planned to graduate early and enroll at his future college for the spring semester, was waiting for the right moment. Or more specifically, the right day."My mom's birthday was like two weeks away, and Nike Classic Cortez Women's Leather Sneakers

our everyday life."It's just unbelievable. It's like having new family members, really."While settling in with a new family, Bettencourt's first spring in Laramie was built around tough love. He was thrown into the most rigorous training regimen of his life, both in the weight room and on the field. Like most other true freshmen, he struggled to adopt a new, more complicated playbook, while also practicing alongside bigger, stronger competition at every position on the field.

tape before deciding whether to maintain his offer or rescind it.Bettencourt would soon graduate from high school, and while Wyoming re acquainted itself with the prospect's highlights, his future hung in limbo."The week went by and I was stressing out, thinking, 'Oh man, I'm screwed,'" Bettencourt said.When Kaligis finally called back, Bettencourt was sitting in class. Recognizing the caller, he stepped outside, unwilling to let the news continue to linger."Richard, Coach [Craig] Bohl and the entire staff has re evaluated your film," Kaligis told him. "We have decided to honor your scholarship and keep you as a commit.""That was a really big pressure off my back," Bettencourt said Tuesday.Bettencourt once again had a home, but that didn't mean he was overly familiar with his future housemates. He had read plenty about Bohl as well as offensive line coach Scott Fuchs, but had yet to speak with either of them when he finally re committed to Wyoming.Months later, he doesn't regret the leap of faith."I think I'm probably more happy coming in with this staff than I would have been with the previous staff," he said. "This strength program and this coaching staff is doing things that I would never imagine a coaching staff would do. They have gone out of their way to make sure that we as players are OK not just on the field or in the weight room, but in Nike Cortez Ultra Breathe

I was thinking that would be a great birthday present for her, to come downstairs and say, 'Yeah, I just got off the phone with Wyoming. I'm going to be a Cowboy. School is paid for,'" Bettencourt said.That's exactly what happened. On Oct. 2, before even telling his parents of his decision, Bettencourt went into his room, called Wyoming defensive graduate assistant Brian Michalowski and made his verbal commitment.Then, he went downstairs and delivered a unique birthday present to Diane Bettencourt, his mother."She gave me a big old hug and told me, 'I love you, son,'" Bettencourt said with a grin, recalling his mother's reaction. "'I'm so proud of you.'"Though a touching gesture, the gift would nearly be returned. Less than two months after making his verbal commitment, Dave Christensen was fired at the conclusion of Wyoming's 5 7 season. Suddenly, the staff that believed in him was packing their belongings into boxes.Suddenly, he was a player without a team."You want to talk about probably the most stressful time of my entire life? I was graduating high school in less than a month when Christensen's staff got fired," Bettencourt said. "I was like, 'Oh my gosh. I have no idea what I'm going to do.' I was getting in contact with all the old schools that had been recruiting me."Wyoming defensive tackles coach Pete Kaligis called Bettencourt and told him the new staff would re evaluate his Nike Cortez Basic Nylon Black White
