Cougs Set To Kick Off Spring Drills


Washington State’s defending Pacific-10 Conference champions will kick off its annual spring football practices Monday.

The Cougars return 35 lettermen, including 17 seniors.

Left tackle Rob Rainville and tight end Love Jefferson are the only returning starters on offense.

Four starters - defensive tackle Gary Holmes, strong safety Lamont Thompson, former Gonzaga Prep linebacker Steve Gleason and cornerback Dee Moronkola - return to anchor a defense that could be much improved.

The first scrimmage will be April 18. The four-week workouts will culminate with the annual Spring Game on April 25 in Martin Stadium.
