LARAMIE – University of Wyoming redshirt junior offensive lineman Patrick Arnold, who started 10 games for the Cowboys over two seasons, has opted to retire from football and instead pursue his master’s degree in physiology, he announced on Twitter on Saturday afternoon.

Arnold, an Omaha, Nebraska, native, started six games in 2019, four at left guard and two at right guard. He started four games in 2018 after redshirting his first season on campus in 2017. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in physiology during the spring, and hopes to be an orthopedic surgeon focusing on knees and hips in the future.
