RODRICK FISHER and CALEB PERRY (WIAA)

Future Cougs blazing fast in state championships, Rodrick Fisher and Caleb Perry win 5 state titles including 100, 200-meter sprints

THE SPEED D at Washington State has some competition. A pair of future Cougs ticketed to play offense at Wazzu combined to win FIVE state titles on Saturday afternoon, including their respective 100-meter and 200-meter sprints.

Wide receiver Rodrick Fisher (6-2, 203) took home the 100-meter state title (Class 2A) with a time of 10.49 seconds, a new meet record.

He followed that up with a state title in the 200, in a time of 21.27.

Running back Caleb Perry (5-9, 180) on Saturday repeated as the Class 1A 100 state champion in the 100 with a time of 11.03.  Perry also won the state 100m title last year.

Perry on Saturday then captured the 200 state title with a time of 21.84.

Perry was also part of the winning 4x100 team, anchoring the King’s squad to the 1A state title in 43.38.

Fisher is expected to receive a waiver later this summer and play a final football season at East Valley High in Spokane. He would then join Washington State in January as part of its 2018 recruiting class.

Perry, out of King’s High in Seattle, signed with Wazzu in February as part of its 2017 class. Along with the rest of his recruiting class, Perry is expected to arrive at WSU next month, enroll in summer school and participate in voluntary summer workouts.

Fisher caught 49 passes last year in only a handful of games. Nine of them went for touchdowns.

Perry rushed for 1,160 yards as a senior and was among state's top 5 prep rushers during 2016 regular season.
