Washington State resumed spring drills with a full pads workout for just over two hours on Rogers Field Tuesday. The Cougars focused a little more on "skelly" and team segments today.
With each practice, the Cougs are implementing more and more of special teams. Today they focused on the technique to blocking kicks and field goals. There were a ton of plays in the team session as some of the series' saw the Cougs play "live" with tackling and moving up and down field to simulate and actual "drive."
The defense probably won the day, mainly on the defensive line and linebackers with Toni Pole and Chester Su'a each blowing up a running play to bring "ooohs" and "aaahhs" from the other defensive players.
Quarterback Jeff Tuel made a couple nice throws to Bobby Ratliff and Andrei Lintz in traffic to highlight the day for the offense. Kickers Andrew Furney and Michael Bowlin capped the day with field goals. Furney worked with the first team and was a perfect 4-for-4, hitting from 47, 42 and twice from 39. Bowlin later hit from 39, missed from 47 and ended the day hitting from 45 with room to spare.
WSU continues spring drills Thursday at 3:10 p.m. Saturday's practice has been pushed back to 1:10 p.m.
