Halliday Healthy and Motivated

PULLMAN - The first day of fall camp also marked the first time in a while that quarterback Connor Halliday had been healthy enough to participate in an official team workout. He talks his competition with Jeff Tuel, his recovery, and more in this 1-on-1 video interview...

With the first day of Washington State fall camp behind him, Connor Halliday is feeling positive and is elated to once again be healthy enough to play and battle with Jeff Tuel for the starting spot.

"I'm feeling well. It's [his liver] all healed up. I'm excited to go. It was a long, long road to recovery. I'm going to come out every day and compete with Jeff. I'm healthy now, so we'll come out and compete every day and see what happens," he said.

Though he missed spring ball, Halliday hasn't had much of an issue transitioning to Mike Leach's Air Raid offense.

"It's been easy. A lot of stuff Coach Leach does is a lot of what I did in high school. The transition hasn't been too tough and I think that me and Jeff have the offense going pretty well after this first day," he siad.

With the season just a few weeks away, the quarterback is honing his skill set as he patiently awaits for the coaches to name a starter.

"[I'm working on] reading defenses, making sure my run checks are right and making sure our protections are in the right place, but other than that everything should be fine and everyone is excited for Provo," he said.
