LARAMIE – Torrington High School alum and University of Wyoming senior offensive lineman Logan Harris capped his time off as a Cowboy with multiple All-Mountain West honors.

On Tuesday, Harris was honored by league coaches and media with an offensive line honorable mention All-Mountain West selection, and on Monday, the he was picked by Pro Football Focus as a second-team All-Mountain West offensive lineman.

“It’s always nice to get the recognition, not only from your team, but a conference-wide thing and somewhat nationally-wide,” he said.

Harris helped anchor the offensive line the past five seasons, starting in 42 games and appearing in 53 career games.

Harris' blocking enabled Wyoming to rank No. 2 in the Mountain West and No. 30 in the nation in rushing offense, averaging 195.1 yards per game for the 2021 season.

It was his third consecutive season earning honorable mention All-Mountain West honors. He also earned the same honors in the COVID shortened 2020 season, as well as 2019.

In 2020, the Cowboys ranked No. 2 in the Mountain West and No. 17 in the nation in rushing offense, averaging 219.5 rushing yards per game and totaling more than 360 yards in total offense in five of six games this season. In 2019, he played 600 total snaps and was credited with more than 50 knockdown blocks.

“I wouldn’t trade it for anything. The last five years taught me a lot,” Harris said. “I see the freshmen come in every year, and I know I would give anything to be back in their shoes. It’s something I will miss greatly.”

Harris will graduate from the University of Wyoming later this month with a degree in American studies.

Now Harris will turn his attention to next spring’s NFL Pro Day.

“I’m going to train for pro day and see where things go from there,” Harris said. “I’ll work out here in Laramie. Our strength staff has a lot of experience with training guys and know what suits me the best.”

Harris was one of eight Cowboys to earn postseason honors during the 6-6 campaign in 2021.
