Rock Springs High School senior Isaac Schoenfeld made his decision to join the Wyoming Cowboys football team official on Wednesday morning.
Joined by his closest friends and extended family, Schoenfeld signed his paperwork along with many other top D1 football players across the nation on early national signing day.
Schoenfeld said he spoke with Wyoming Tight End Coach Shannon Moore and Head Coach Craig Bohl early Wednesday morning. Both coaches expressed how eager they were to get him to Laramie and begin work on the next season.

“It means a lot being from this state. It’s super exciting. I’m ready to go play football in Laramie,” Schoenfeld said.
The Tigers went on to have one of the best years in the program’s recent history, making a run for the championship but ultimately fell short against the Sheridan Broncs. Schoenfeld was a key part of the Tigers success on the field this season.
In his senior season, the All-State tight end recorded 35 receptions for 477 yards and 8 touchdowns in the passing game. On the ground the Tigers relied heavily on Schoenfeld as he had an additional 670 yards and 6 touchdowns in the rushing attack.
Throughout his career, however, Schoenfeld said his favorite memory wasn’t the glory or many accolades he saw, but his sophomore year playing with some of his best friends that he grew up with will be one he never forgets.
Schoenfeld said he is looking forward to living in a new place and experiencing new friendships and opportunities, but he is ultimately grateful for the chance to play college football for the Wyoming Cowboys.
He will study Wildlife Biology with the goal to work for Game and Fish.
