Hilinski, Dimry thrive in first spring scrimmage
PULLMAN, WA —
If there has been one bright spot this spring for Washington State, that would be the play of their quarterback. Let me re-phrase that, their backup quarterback. Tyler Hilinski has gotten rave reviews from Head Coach Mike Leach and on Saturday he impressed yet again.
Hilinski tossed four touchdown passes to lead the Cougar offense while Isaac Dotson did his best to slow the air raid attack down with a pair of sacks in the team’s first spring scrimmage. Hilinski spread the ball around finding Renard Bell and Tavares Martin Junior on touchdown strikes while C.J. Dimry found the end zone twice in all the Cougar ‘D’ racked up nine sacks on the day but it was Hilinski and Dimry who stole the show.
"He's improved, he's improved a lot, even since last year,” said Coach Leach. “I thought he did some good things today. I think they're committed to improving, I think we're working steadily. I think they've had a good offseason but I think they have a long ways to go. I think as a team we've got a long ways to go but the best thing is everybody is working to get there."
The Cougs will continue spring practice on Tuesday beginning at 2:30p.m.
