Co-founder and Managing Editor

CougCenter responsibilities include: Planning and coordinating content; managing the website; writing.

I'm a freelance journalist who co-founded CougCenter in August 2008 because writing about WSU athletics is my passion.

Past employers include The (Tacoma, Wash.) News Tribune and CBSSports.com, and my work has appeared at ESPN.com Insider, Basketball Prospectus, Lindy's college sports annuals and Horizon Air Magazine. I own the currently-on-hiatus Cougar Sports Weekly, an email newsletter that real people actually paid real money to receive.

Helping teenagers master the English language constitutes the bulk of my day job.

Connor Halliday catches the eye of NFL draft scout

+

Halliday, signed by former head coach Paul Wulff, is not the typical Leach quarterback. The lanky 6-foot-4, 198-pounder has a live arm and loves to show it off. He attacked the Scarlet Knights with the typical in-breaking routes Leach has made famous. Halliday also showed very good accuracy on both intermediate and deep out-breaking routes, consistently throwing before his receivers turned. Halliday also showed deft touch on verticals down the sideline and when dropping passes over the defenders with their backs turned to him.

Jeff Tuel cut by the Buffalo Bills

Disappointing for sure, but it's hard to imagine Tuel doesn't land on his feet somewhere -- he's shown enough to intrigue other organizations, I would think. It looks like he's also still eligible for the practice squad.
