They're off: Cougs begin '15 preseason drills

LEWISTON -- Three yellow school buses loaded with players and coaches pulled up to Sacajawea Middle School just after 2 p.m. Saturday, and within minutes, Washington State's 2015 football season began to look real.

At 2:30 p.m., without much fanfare or noise, players began to go through 10 minutes of stretching and warm-ups. The warm-ups for some of the offensive linemen were a little amusing, as they were running backward and forward using jump ropes. After warm-ups, players broke into position groups, and soon, there were 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills, with quarterback Luke Falk directing the No. 1 offense.

When the No. 1 offense gathered for 7-on-7, the receivers were River Cracraft, Gerard Wicks, Jamal Morrow and Robert Lewis. Gabe Marks and Dom Williams joined the No. 1 group when the drill expanded to 11-on-11.

Interestingly, Falk's first pass in the 11-on-11 drill was intercepted by second-year freshman Taylor Comfort, who got to the ball just before Cracraft.

At this point, it doesn't appear anyone who was expected to practice is missing from drills.

It's a hot day in Lewiston, as the temperature is near 95 with a light breeze.
