Three Cougars earn Preseason All-Pac-12 honors

PULLMAN, WA - Just like last week, a few Cougar football players are honored before even doing anything.

Washington State junior defensive lineman Xavier Cooper and linebacker Darryl Monroe were each named to the Preseason All-Pac-12 third team while senior wide receiver Vince Mayle was placed on the fourth team on Tuesday.

Cooper made 50 tackles including team-highs of 13.5 tackles-for-loss and five sacks. Mayle caught 42 passes for 539 yards and tied for the team high with seven touchdown receptions. Monroe tallied 94 tackles last year including eight tackles-for-loss, two sacks and also forced two fumbles.
