Cougs end practice in Lewiston with an 85-play Scrimmage

PULLMAN, WA - The Cougar football team is heading back up to the Palouse a whole lot better, after fall camp in Lewiston comes to an end.

The Washington State Football ended their time here Wednesday with an 85-play Scrimmage at Sacajawea Junior High. And wow, the Cougar offense looked impressive!

Quarterback Connor Halliday threw four touchdowns as the offense added three touchdowns on the ground. Running back Gerard Wicks led the way with 94 yards on five carries, including a 44 yard touchdown run.

Coach Leach reflects on Halliday impressive performance while linebacker Darryl Monroe said camp as a whole was exactly what he expected and wanted for the team.

"Thought he did good, thought he played really well today," said Leach. "I thought it was one of his best days. I thought he played really sharp and did a good job moving the offense."

"You know it was the last day in camp and it really feels like it," said Monroe. "Your legs are heavy muscles are tight but you know I wouldn't trade it for anything. I really got time to bond with a lot of guys that maybe I wouldn't have gotten so close with. It was a great experience and I just love coming out here. It's just you and your teammates and it really builds that chemistry and that brotherhood."

This is the second year the Cougs have come to Lewiston for fall ball. They practiced a total of 11 days here and are now headed back to Pullman to start practicing in Martin Stadium.

The Cougars first game is August 28th.
