Cougar snapshots: Spring camp day 4

The sun was out and the weather a little warmer on Friday as the Cougars were dressed in full pads for the first time in what has been a very physical spring camp. In this edition of Cougar Snapshots, some new faces run through drills while suited up in blue and white.
