Washington State football: Senior DB becoming anchor for WSU defense

PULLMAN - Washington State revved up game day preparation for Eastern Washington Tuesday afternoon. Both the offensive and defensive drills were impressive.

As coach Mike Leach and his staff ran the Cougs through practice sessions today, clearly the team was fine tuning the work they've put in over the course of fall camp.

Here's a few highlights:

1.     Solo Broughton looking good

-       Treshon Broughton (pictured above) might be the best 1-on-1 corner that the Cougs have right now. He’s very good at using his long frame to get his hands on defenders – keeping them from working into their routes. Broughton had a very impressive practice today but was exceptional in the Cougs 1-on-1 period as he was giving Tavares Martin a really tough time.

2.     Falk spreading the rock

-       Luke Falk has this offense down to a “t” right now. He’s hitting the big name targets and consistently getting every offensive skill player equal touches. He's hitting targets inside and out including finding his running backs often. Right now Falk's throws are coming off his hand with excellent accuracy, touch and confidence.

3.     Defense swarms

-       The Cougar defense saw some live looks of Eastern Washington’s playbook today. Though some formations may look new to them, defensive coordinator Alex Grinch has been prepping these guys to make the right calls all camp long. The defense is playing with great leverage on the field and look very aggressive right now. They seem to be very comfortable with the looks that coach Grinch has given them thus far.

For a complete report of all the action on the practice field Tuesday, check back later this evening.
