WSU First Day Scrimmage reaction
PULLMAN, WA —
Washington State football held its first spring scrimmage on Saturday and among the rain, the defense has a strong outing.
For example, redshirt freshman Dallas Hobbs had himself two sacks.
Despite the strong showing, according to defensive coordinator Tracey Claey’s there’s still work to be done.
“We got to get the secondary figured out and who’s where and what they do well,” Claeys said. “We’ve has a couple of kids banged up, but that’s football. So, other guys have to step up and play. So, we got our work cut out for us to get the secondary figured out.”
In terms of quarterback play, Trey Tinsley and Anthony Gordon were the most accurate with how many passes they threw.
Tinsley went 10/13 with 68 yards and a touchdown and Gordon was 12/17 with 98 yards and two touchdowns.
The freshman early enrollee Cammon Cooper attempted the most passes out the QBs, going 8/20 with 160 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
“I thought he finished up good,” Head coach Mike Leach said after the scrimmage on Saturday, referring to Cooper. “I thought he played with a little bit of nerves early and getting used to hanging on with the ball. But, I thought he finished out good.”
