From what CF.C was able to piece together, some form of the competition was in existence under Mike Leach and it appears Harrell, a big wrestling fan, added the belt to the mix.
Harrell got the belt at a WWE wrestling event when Harrell was with the Packers. He and several teammates were featured on a Friday Night Smackdown event in Wisconsin and each Packer got a belt.
On Thursdays during the practice week at Washington State, before Thursday Night Football, a skills competition takes place between the two young quarterbacks on the WSU roster: Peyton Bender and Luke Falk (pictured above.)
The competition itself might change week to week, maybe one time it’s throwing ball into a garbage can from 25 yards away and placed tight up against the sideline. The next Thursday, it could be something completely different.
Harrell’s first tweet on Oct. 9 showed Peyton Bender winning the belt, and noted Bender had a winning streak going on. Connor Ennis won the belt the first time it was awarded.
Yesterday’s tweet showed Luke Falk won the belt: @WSU_TheBelt @lukefalk4 @Pbender4 @Conezzy_12 @c_halliday12 The streak is broken #newdynasty
