It's great to have a fellow Spokane player next to me. I remember the first time I saw Andy when he was a freshman out of East Valley and I was a senior at Mead. We were at a track meet in high school.
He was already big back then and he could really throw the shot and disc. I thought to myself, I am sure glad I'm not in his class because I might never win a meet.
As a football player, Andy has developed a whole lot in the short time he has been at WSU.
He is definitely ready to make some noise and will probably surprise a lot of people over the course of his career here at Washington State.
I also saw a question asking about what linemen do while the "skill" players do the receiving drills. Linemen usually do the same thing, hone our own football skills.
Receivers and quarterbacks must work to get their timing down and linemen must be able to do the same. We have to be able to communicate and to move in the same direction, figuratively and literally.
We do position drills, watch film, go through plays as a unit -- all so that we can all see, understand and feel what we are going to do in certain situations. We don't get to play with the ball, but it's absolutely critical to our success and we still have fun.
Okay Cougfans, it has been another hard working week, and another one is coming up. Keep posting questions on the Cougfan.com message boards and we will continue the countdown next week!
