Prediction & How He Improves Cougars in 2013:
It’s no secret, the Washington State Defense needs improvement… Well just about everywhere, even though I think they out performed expectations last year (which isn’t saying much) they still have a long way to go. First ever fourth gen Cougar legacy Peyton Pelluer is a great and much needed addition to the Linebacking crew.
Even though I do like our linebackers right now we just need more out of that position. Peyton will bring great power and vision to our Defense in 2013, although not sure he will start, when he gets his chance I feel like he’ll smash it! Although it’s bold I’m going to say he reminds me a little of Will Derting, his vision, speed and ability to read where the ball is through play actions, draws and reverses. He can sniff out the ball and shut down a play with strength and speed.
This kid is going to be really good by the end of his career at Wazzu and I know we’re all looking forward to seeing him get in there and tear it up!
