I'm sure many of you have seen this week's photo which was taken last night at the NBA Draft. This is a photo courtesy of Klay and his family taken in Newark, N.J. Klay was the No. 11 overall pick of the 2011 draft taken by the Golden State Warriors. He became WSU's highest drafted player, surpassing Don Collins who was the 18th pick in the 1980 draft taken by Atlanta. This photo proves that 'Once a Coug, Always a Coug' as Klay continues to 'Wave the Flag'.

Above and below, the team, along with the coaching staff, came out to help the two newcomers move into their on-campus dorms.
Cougar alumnus and 1998 Rose Bowl team member Shawn McWashington was in Pullman to speak at the WSU Mentor's Workshop, Monday. Among the many topics McWashington spoke about was how to be an effective mentor to student-athletes. The WSU student-athlete mentor program is designed to help student-athletes prepare for success in life, inside and outside the realm of athletics, and offer assistance to student-athletes to meet their changing needs. For more information on the student-athlete mentoring program at WSU Athletics contact Milford Hodge, Student-Athlete Mentor Program Coordinator, at 335-7404.
Moos and Wulff visited the base to invite Fairchild servicemen and women to the Nov. 19 Armed Forces Day game vs. Utah. In addition, Bill Moos talked about the visit, as well as Jeshua Anderson's third national title and this weekend's Cougar Legends event in his weekly podcast conducted today.

Less than a week removed from securing his third NCAA 400m hurdles title, Jeshua Anderson took time out from his training for the USA Championships later this month to discuss last week's race, his WSU career, and his future goals.
This photo is of Butch along with Colorado's mascot Chip, taken at a taping of the Today Show in New York as both teams were there for the semifinals of the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) in March. The photo also serves as a glance into the future as beginning this upcoming season WSU and Colorado will compete in the same league, the Pacific-12 Conference. Unfortunately Cougar football and basketball fans will have to travel to Boulder to catch the Cougs and the Buffs face-off, as WSU football takes on Colorado on the road Oct. 1 and basketball faces the Buffaloes just once, Jan. 7, also on the road.
This first photo was taken in October when the team photo was taken. We were trying to get the guys to pose a couple of huddle shots for use on different publications, etc. Someone must have done or said something funny to get Marcus Capers to react the way he did. There are usually a lot of laughs during photo shoots similar to this one, which can make for a fun, but long day.
The second photo honors the birthday boy, Charlie Enquist. This photo was taken at the hotel in New York when the team was there for the NIT in March, as Charlie 'Waves the Flag' proudly. A big happy birthday goes out to Charlie who celebrates his birthday today.
