New walk on kicker joining WSU competition

WSU SPECIAL TEAMS coach Eric Russell has told CF.C that the competition will be intense in fall camp to replace standout kicker Andrew Furney, though only Erik Powell and Wes Concepcion are listed on the roster. But another has joined the fight. He is former Fresno State starting kicker Quentin Breshears, who confirmed with CF.C that he was in Pullman on Wednesday and will suit up for WSU in 2014.

Quentin Breshears, a 6-1, 185-pounder, earned the starting place-kicking duties for the Fresno State Bulldogs in 2012, one year after joining the program and redshirting.

As a redshirt freshman for FSU in 2012, the Turlock, Calif., product was 11-for-14 on his field goal attempts, with a long of 43, and 56-of-62 on his PAT tries. In a loss to Oregon that year, Breshears went 4-for-4 and earned the Mountain West Special Teams Player of the Week award, the first in the program's history, according to his FSU bio page.

Following the 2012 season, though, Breshears left the Bulldogs' program to focus on being a full-time student, according to a Fresno Bee Hive report. Breshears then landed at Fresno City College, joining the football program for the 2013 season.

In 2014, he joins a WSU program that is filled with question marks at the kicker spot. The Cougars lost Furney to graduation, the four-year starter having handled the WSU field goal duties since late in his freshman season (2010).

In addition to Breshears, Concepcion and Powell, WSU is also known to bringing in preferred walk-on punter Jon Weilbacher, out of Crespi, Calif., who has placekicking and field goal kicking experience.
