EWU players were doing mandatory, small-group workouts in recent weeks, hopeful they would get the green light for full-fledged practices in August.
Several reports Thursday suggest that the Big Sky Conference is aiming for a spring football season.
PULLMAN – Cammon Cooper threw for four touchdowns and Trey Tinsley threw three during Washington State’s second spring football scrimmage Saturday at Martin Stadium. The WSU offense totaled 11 touchdowns, including two thrown by Anthony Gordon and one each by John Bledsoe and Gunner Cruz.
The thud of the football coming off a receiver’s hands. The crunch of a cornerback flying in to make a play. The collective whoop of the defensive sideline echoing after every incompletion and pass breakup.
In his senior season in 2018, Burr-Kirven was named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year and led the UW defense with 176 total tackles – more than 100 more than the next-best Husky.
Not since 2013 have the inside linebackers at WSU been under different leadership. Ken Wilson was by Mike Leach’s side for six seasons, from 2013-18, until the longest-tenured assistant in Pullman accepted the same position at Oregon this offseason.
The faces are familiar, but the turnaround isn’t.
He didn’t sweep into Pullman with the force of a tornado, and he hasn’t thrown an iconic touchdown pass to a receiver sliding into a snowbank to win the Apple Cup, like his father. But there is another Bledsoe wearing No. 11 for the Washington State football team, and in the Cougars’ second spring workout, he had a pretty good day.
A seven-play opening drive that began with a 20-yard pass from Mason Petrino to Kaden Ellis and ended with Petrino racing around right end from two yards out for a touchdown was a striking way for Idaho to open its spring game Friday.
Josh Watson wasn’t surprised to hear his name listed. He was just startled because he thought ‘Watson’ would be the fifth name out of Mason Miller’s mouth, rather than the second.
Strong wind gusts and persistent rain showers accompanied, but did not deter, the Washington State football team from making plays – and more important, making progress – on both sides of the ball during the Cougars’ first mock scrimmage at Martin Stadium.
Instead of relying on a diet of lean meats, green vegetables and healthy starches, the 6-foot-3, 240-pound edge rusher is bulking up by shoveling down some of McDonald’s famous breakfast items.
The start of spring football at Washington on Wednesday brought a new offensive coordinator, a new play-caller on defense and even a new highly hyped transfer quarterback still a year away from playing.
Some years, on teams laden with experience, spring football is an accurate prologue to the coming season.
Technically it’s only a scrimmage, but the Eastern Washington quarterbacks are sure to feel game-like pressure in the Red-White Spring Game.
Offseason improvement can be difficult to discern, particularly when it comes to kickers. Even for a pair like Washington State kicker Erik Powell and punter Zach Charme, both of whom have started since their freshmen season, growth may not appear to be linear.
Cole Karstetter and the rest of the Eagles’ secondary endured a few growing pains last year, including the transition to a 4-2-5 scheme, new terminology and a new mindset of playing with more aggression.
Spring didn’t come a moment too soon for Eastern Washington’s defensive linemen.
To all the defensive coordinators in the Big Sky Conference: Don’t feel sorry for Aaron Best. In a year or two, Best plans to shove that pity down your throat.
Besides the obvious ones, Eastern Washington is reaping some big benefits from Cooper Kupp’s decision to stay in Cheney for his senior season.
