G&T Blog matters: Vandals add girth on D-line, WSU football closes out Lewiston camp

 

A sampling from the past week of posts in the S-R blog SportsLink at spokesman.com/ sportslink.

6: Wednesday: Idaho completed its second two-a-day of the week on Wednesday, and coach Paul Petrino was again happy with what he saw. In fact, he said the Vandals’ morning practice session “might have been the best practice we’ve had since I’ve been here.”

  Thursday: After 12 straight days of covering football practice I know I’m starting to lose my legs, so I can only imagine how Washington State’s players and coaches must feel. The kickers certainly looked a little wobbly yesterday, and maybe the defense could use a break, too (except the freshmen defensive linemen that is; those kids looked like they’d had a little too much sugar).

But we all made it through fall camp in Lewiston no worse for wear.

In fact, apart from one apparent head injury to Gabe Marks and some bumps and bruises along the offensive line and secondary, the Cougars left Sacajawea Junior High with their health intact, which can’t be said of a lot of schools.
