Future Cougars Report

FUTURE COUGARS ARE putting up some crooked numbers already. When linebacker Aaron Porter pledged WSU, we told you his versatility was exceptional and that he could play any one of the 'backer positions on the Cougs' defense. Well, he kinda did that in the opener for Cerritos College because he was all over the field. Meanwhile, Marysville-Pilchuck's Austin Joyner continues to amaze.

LB Aaron Porter: How's this for a stat line. Porter led Cerritos College in tackles with eight in the season-opening 27-24 win over Saddleback -- he posted one sack, three tackles for loss, three QB hurries, an interception and a pass break up.

CB Austin Joyner will play on defense at Washington State but he continues to tear up the Washington prep football landscape on offense. Joyner went for 263 yards on just 12 carries in Marysville-Pilchuck's 41-15 win over Kamiak. His first carry of the season was a 47-yard sprint that ended in the end zone. Joyner ran for at least 30 yards on four of his carries. Joyner began the season with 3,823 rushing yards, A 2,000=yard season would move him into the state's all-time top ten list of prep rushers. He ran for 1,981 as a sophomore. With 2,126 yards, he move into the fifth spot on the state’s rushing list.

In Upland, Calif., WR Kameron Powell racked up eight tackles, (four solo) in Upland's 43-0 win over Redlands. In two games, Powell has 14 tackles (seven solo) -- he and Upland have yet to allow a single point to the opposition, (114-0). He also has a fumble return for a touchdown on the season.
