HOT COUGAR ACTION: Fall Camp Day Eight Recap

Reading through the daily assortment of fall camp coverage, there are a few names you see every day. Jeff Tuel is one. Jared Karstetter, Marquess Wilson and Deone Bucannon are also almost always highlighted for strong play. Lately, however, there has been a new addition to the usual suspects, Damante Horton.

Horton, a sophomore cornerback, played well as a true freshman last season. He began to see more and more time at cornerback before suffering a knee injury against Arizona. Now Horton is healthy and consistently making plays in the secondary, including two interceptions Sunday.

We will have more on Horton in our positional previews, but until then enjoy an array of links after the jump.

Summarizing WSU's morning practice - SportsLink - - Aug. 14, 2011
Pretty simple day, with the attitude more businesslike than emotional, except near the end. A couple changes on the injury list, with freshman linebacker Darryl Monroe returning from his concussion, albeit in a yellow jersey, and left tackle David Gonzales sitting out after tweaking his left ankle Saturday.

Sunday morning links and notes from WSU - SportsLink - - Aug. 14, 2011
WSU basketball coach Ken Bone took in a big part of practice yesterday and shared some roster news. As has been expected, Steven Bjornstad won't be part of the team this year. The center has struggled with knee problems since arriving at WSU a couple years ago and the injuries have proven to be too much. With Bjornstad no longer on scholarship - Bone said he will remain in school – the Cougars have the required number of players on scholarship now.

PULLMAN — Rickey Galvin speaks the words more matter-of-factly than bombastically. "My game on the field is kind of shocking," he says. "I'm shifty and can make big plays."

SS Deone Bucannon, Washington State: He led the Cougars in tackles as a true freshman and made plenty of big plays (see: two interceptions and two forced fumbles). He also made some mistakes. Expect the mistakes to go down and the big plays to go up.

WSU Athletics has a post practice video with Paul Wulff.
