Fall camp day 4 roundup

Deone "gun show" Bucannon - Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

The Cougars had another productive practice on Monday. Robert Lewis and Daquawn Brown drew headlines after strong practices.

Another day, another practice. This one with 100 percent more stories about a 155-pound wide receiver laying out linebackers.

Quick Notes:

  • There are usually a few notable plays during practice, but few involve the smallest guy on the team flattening a linebacker. That happened on Monday when the 5-foot-9, 155-pound Robert Lewis put the 6-foot, 218-pound Jared Byers on the ground.
  • Video of the block can be seen in the Tana Pritchard interview below.
  • On a related note, please be good Peyton Pelluer.
  • Freshman corner Daquawn Brown is going to play this season. Mike Breske said the hope is Brown will play after he worked his way onto the second team.
  • In a possibly related note, Anthony Carpenter worked out at safety on Monday. WSU doesn't have much safety depth, so that move makes sense. Carpenter is versatile enough to play either spot.
  • Brown's nickname is "Cheetah" which is awesome.

Blurb of the day:

From Christian Caple's post-practice notes:

Even the soft-spoken Justin Sagote had something to say on Monday. He planted Marcus Mason in the backfield on a rushing play, then stood up and yelled things at him.

Injury report:

Chester Su'a, Matt Meyer and Paulo Lepua remain absent while Tyler Baker, Paris Taylor and Rahmel Dockery were working on their Tour de France stills again. They were joined on the bikes by Mortiz Christ and Feddie Davey.

Quotable:

"Well they were fairly begin to begin with. And I don't look at them as often as maybe you do because there are a lot of guns out there. I'll have to take a look the next time I see him." -- Mike Leach when asked about the growth of Deone Bucannon's "guns"

Tweet of the day:

Videos:

LEWISTON – It isn’t enough for Daquawn Brown that in the third practice of his collegiate football career, he was already taking reps with the No. 2 defense at cornerback. The self-assured freshman from Los Angeles had his sights set even higher.
