The Washington State football team was back on the practice field Friday for their second fall camp practice. According to Christian Caple on Twitter, new cornerback Raymond Ford has been added to the roster and watched practice Friday while incoming wide receiver Alex Jackson is expected to arrive on Saturday.
After saying he felt as good as he has since high school yesterday, Wade Jacobson was not at practice Friday.
OL Wade Jacobson not at practice today. Leach, as usual, said everyone is as healthy as can be, etc., when asked.— Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) August 4, 2012
Player Of The Day:
Gabe Marks saw some action during team drills, an impressive feat for a freshman in his second practice. He also played well enough to earn some heavy praise from Mike Leach in the video below. Plays like this don't hurt.
Gabe Marks probably had the play of the day, hauling in a lengthy touchdown pass in the end zone over Deone Bucannon and Damante Horton.— Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) August 4, 2012
Picture Of The Day:
"We had good work in the summer because these young guys know the plays. I mean I expected to stop in-between plays, tell everybody what to do all this stuff, there wasn't a lot of that we could just call a play and run it." -- Mike Leach on the early performance of incoming freshman.
Another day, another 2:45 p.m. PT practice at Rogers Field.
