Cougars A.M. Links: Washington State News 4/18


Morning Coug fans! You’ll have to forgive my spotty link days lately, it’s been a busy week and will continue to get crazy over the weekend. Since I missed yesterday I figured I’d give you maybe not all the links but the most interesting over the past two days. So here are my favs for the past 48 hours.


Air Raid Playbook: Shallow Cross – CougCenter

"Looking at H shallow from the Oklahoma Sooners playbook, which is called “Ace Rip 6”, we can see the basic concept. Two vertical routes to the outside will draw safety/corner coverage deep, opening up the field underneath. A dig route is ran opposite the shallow route, settling into the first open zone, and a route occupies the flat where the shallow came from."

Air Raid Playbook: Y-Sail – CougCenter

"The next Air Raid concept we’ll focus on is known as “Y-Sail”, and it’s a traditional flood style pass concept. The general idea is to overwhelm one side of the field with receivers, or flood it. Flood concept routes are designed to attack zone coverage, and aren’t as successful against man coverage."

What a difference a year makes, says Dockery – CF.c

"Rahmel Dockery carried his dream of an NFL career from Curtis High to Washington State last year. It took just one day of fall practice for him to abandon his dream, however temporarily. In fact, he almost abandoned football altogether."

WSU’s Joe Dahl is livin’ the dream – CF.c

"As much as he liked Montana, he couldn’t shake the feeling he had let a dream slip away. Joe Dahl had turned down an 11th-hour scholarship offer from WSU to stick with the Griz, who had pursued him hard from the start. But as his redshirt freshman season in Missoula unfolded in the fall of 2011, his mind kept taking him to two places: Pullman and Pasadena."

Pritchard’s QB instincts aid WSU defense – Spokesman

"“He’s got some really good football intelligence,” said WSU linebackers coach Ken Wilson. “He’s been a quarterback, he sees things like a quarterback, so I like the way he learns. I like the way he can direct the defense out there.”"


Why Cougar Jump Shooters are cheering today – CF.c

"WASHINGTON STATE’S signing today of junior college point guard Danny Lawhorn is far more than meets the eye. His joining the team instantly improves the offensive output of DaVonte Lacy, Royce Woolridge, Que Johnson, Dexter Kernich-Drew, Ikenna Iroegbu and Brett Boese."

PG Danny Lawhorn formally commits to Washington State – CougCenter

"Lawhorn is 5’10” and has averaged 9.6 points, and 9.0 assists (!!!) over his last two seasons at San Jacinto, giving WSU the true Point Guard they’ve sorely been missing since Reggie Moore’s departure."
