CougCenter responsibilities include: Writing, with an emphasis on breaking down football schemes and finding interesting ways to look at data.

Born and raised in the Tri-Cities, Wash., I'm a current graduate student in environmental science at WSU Tri-Cities and researcher at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

A former high school quarterback, I like to bring the knowledge and insight I gained while playing the position and studying the game to my writing. I also apply techniques in data analysis I've learned professionally when the situation calls for it.

A post about bourbon

A college friend, my Dad, and I toured Kentucky before the Auburn game, travelling the "Bourbon Trail" to hit all the major distilleries. Some history, some info, some power rankings, some pics...some ghost?

What to watch for: Halliday's run checks

The Cougs ran the ball effectively against Auburn; can they replicate it against a USC team that now knows WSU can do it?
