COLUMBUS - Columbus senior Joey Braasch has made his decision on where to continue his football career.

Braasch announced on Twitter Sunday night that he will be committing to the University of Wyoming. Braasch said in a statement:

"First off I'd like to thank my coaches, family, and friends for everything they have done for me. I would be nowhere without their motivation and guidance. I'd also like to thank my teammates for having my back and sticking with me through rough times and adversity. After careful thought and consideration, I'm proud to announce that I'll be committing to the University of Wyoming."

Braasch has rushed for nearly 1500 yards during his career at Columbus, averaging 7.3 yards per carry and scoring 18 rushing touchdowns. Other Nebraskans who play for the Cowboys include C.J.
