If there's a player on WSU's roster who exemplifies Mike Leach's mantra to do your job and be the most excited to play, it's definitely senior wide receiver Gabe Marks.
One of the reasons Marks is WSU's best pass catcher and a candidate for the Biletnikoff Award in 2016 is because he never takes a play off -- not even during spring practices. Observe:

I'm not sure what Marks did to shake the DB on his way to the end zone, but the finish is about as good as it gets -- pulling in the ball one handed while the corner holds your other arm back? That's big time, even in spring practices.
The Cougs have completed six of their 15 allotted practices, and will take the field again on Thursday. The Crimson and Gray game is right around the corner, on April 23 at Joe Albi Stadium in Spokane.
