Cougars A.M. Links: Washington State News 4/19


Good Friday morning Cougs! Just one day to Spokane Week kicks off with the Washington State Spring Game and I gotta say, I’m pretty excited to go watch a football game again. Speaking of Football, that’s all we have in links today.

"Let’s take a look at a Cover 2 beater, “Shakes.” The Shakes concepts didn’t change much from BYU to Leach’s iteration at Oklahoma."

Cougs getting grasp on who will be their holder – Spokesman

"Apodaca, a redshirt freshman quarterback, and Bowlin, a senior kicker and punter, are the top two candidates at the moment, though sophomore receiver Brett Bartolone has also taken some reps there. Special teams coach Eric Russell wants to solidify the No. 3 spot sooner rather than later."

Chester Su’a Must Get Healthy for Washington State Cougars – Rant Sports

"Su’a made quite an impact at linebacker during his sophomore season, recording 35 tackles, including four tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks. The coaching staff was counting on him to step up into a larger role on the defense for his junior season, but he has yet to participate in drills this spring as he is held out with an injury. Coaches are confident that Su’a will be able to fully participate in fall camp in August, but for now he must stand on the sidelines and watch."
