Wyoming Recruit Doyle Trout in Car Accident

The kid had to have his left leg amputated above the knee.  He was a 4x state champ in HS.  Hope he hangs in there.  Classy statement from Branch:

Tuesday afternoon Wyoming Wrestling Head Coach Mark Branch issued the following statement on Trout's accident and injury, "Our thoughts and prayers are with Doyle and his family. Doyle is a strong young man, and he was in good spirits when we saw him on Monday. This is obviously a life-changing incident, but he is a young man who is equipped to handle this. He is still part of our family. We told his family when we saw them that nothing changes on our end, we will honor his scholarship, and he is still a Wyoming Cowboy. We want Doyle and his family to know that we are here to support them any way we can. We're thankful that he didn't have any life-threatening injuries. Given the severity of the accident, it is amazing that he will be able to move forward and live a healthy life. "

Terrible thing to happen to a person, especially a young kid with his whole life ahead of him. Would be inspirational if he became a Robles type figure and pursued a successful wrestling career.

Kudos to Coach Branch for the way he and U Wyoming are handling.  Class all the way around.  Branch would know about getting a 2nd chance, easy to see where some of the empathy comes from.

One more reason to support the Coyboys.  Reminds me of when Russell had his accident and J honored his schollie.

I bet we see him on the mat wrestling someday.
