Coug WR trio on pace to make WSU history

IN CASE YOU missed it, River Cracraft had 14 catches against Stanford, setting the single-game WSU record (13, Gabe Marks, 2013). And the sophomore is but one of three Washington State wide receivers on track do to do something no Cougar wideout has ever done.

Cracraft is tied with Vince Mayle for the team lead with 57 grabs through seven games, they rank third and seventh nationally in receptions per game. (Cracraft missed a game this season and has played in six games. Cracraft is averaging 9.5 rpg, Mayle is at 8.1).

Meanwhile, Isiah Myers has 53 receptions. His 7.6 rpg puts him in a tie for 10th nationally.

The WSU single-season receiving record is 82, set by Marquess Wilson in 2011.

At their current pace over a 12-game season, all three will pass Wilson. Mayle and Cracraft would finish with 98 grabs and Myers is on pace for 91.

--All three also have seven TD receptions through seven games. The program mark is 13, held by Jason Hill (2005).

--Mayle on his present pace would finish with 1,338 receiving yards in a 12-game season, 50 hashes off the record held by Wilson (1,338 in 2011). Cracraft and Myers are also on pace to finish with 1,000-yard seasons, with 1,158 and 1,074 receiving yards, respectively.

Cracraft is on pace to double his reception total as a true freshman (46). At his current track, Cracraft’s first two seasons at Washington State would result in 144 pass receptions.

That would put the second-year sophomore on pace to obliterate the WSU career receptions record. Indeed, Cracraft at his current pace would set the all-time mark next season as a third-year junior.

The all-time WSU program mark for career receptions is held by Michael Bumpus, with 195 receptions from 2004-07. The Pac-12 record for receptions is 259, held by Michael Thomas (Arizona, 2005-08).

The national record is 349, set by Ryan Broles (Oklahoma, 2008-11).
