Cole Morgan's Diary: Week Two

Pullman -- Hey there Cougar fans, Week 2 and the Cougs are hitting it hard. Already, it's become clear to me that we are really coming together as a team. The captains are all doing a great job of leading the voluntary workouts and holding teammates accountable. Things have started off very well this summer, and they're going to continue to get better and better and I'll tell you why.

A big part of the reason we'll continue to improve is that the team captains, Alex Brink, Mkristo Bruce, Scott Davis and Jason Hill, are doing a great job of leading by example.

Since my last diary entry, we had a very good 7-on-7 skelly, added some more difficulty to our workouts, and the quarterbacks now find themselves running with the defensive backs and wide outs.

We run a lot over the course of the summer. There are three running groups, each runs just about a couple seconds apart, with the No. 1 group consisting of DBs, WRs, RBs and now...the QBs.

Previously, the quarterbacks were running with the linebackers and tight ends group but we're now running with the fastest guys on the team -- and those guys are fast, it's all I can do to keep up.

That second group, by the way, has added a new position as well. In addition to the LBs, TEs, Ks and Ps, the defensive ends are now running with them. MK, Matt and all those guys are going to be fast coming off the end this year.

The skelly last week saw each of the four QBs get in their reps, each mixing in with the 1s, 2s and 3's. It went very well, everyone that didn't have a class obligation was there and working hard.

The receivers are looking great, all of them look awesome, actually. They're coming out of their cuts quickly and they're catching everything.

If you have any questions for me, post them on the Cougfan.com message boards and I'll do my best to answer as many as I can.

Cole, No.18

Cole Morgan, WSU redshirt freshman, has been tutored by Cougar quarterback legend Jack Thompson since he was 10 years old. Referred to by WSU coach Timm Rosenbach as "a taller Jason Gesser," Morgan as a prep senior guided Ballard High to the state playoffs for the first time in school history, throwing for 1,816 yards and 26 TDs. Along with senior DE and team captain Mkristo Bruce, he graciously volunteered this summer to give CF.C readers a window on the world of pre-season Cougar football preparation with a weekly diary.
