Signing day has been a tedious and nervous job for Mike Leach since after the 2016 season. The Cougar football team lost there star wide receivers (River Cracraft and Gabe Marks) who combined for 56 career touch downs. Leach has had a hard job to fill the shoes of the best receiving tandem in Washington State University history. Well thank you to signing day, hopefully WSU has replaced the two graduating seniors with a trio of wide receivers. The Cougars now have Travell Harris, Devontavean Martin, and Jamire Calvin. The two three-star recruits and one four-star recruit respectively. This is something that Cougar fans all around the nation can get excited for. With Luke Falk’s era coming to an end after the 2017 fans can be sure expecting another bowl game. Hopefully rallying the fans from the loss in the Holiday Bowl against University of Minnesota. The trio can give new life into the Cougar football team and the fans.
This was a smart signing by Mike Leach because he lives by throwing the ball just as much as the Golden State Warriors live by the 3-ball. With the versatility, these guys give the football team Luke Falk will have various options to throw to each down. With Harris being the speedster at five-foot-eight-inches, he will certainly have a chance to start in the slot replacing Cracraft. While we have the bigger targets on the outside, Martin at six-foot-four and Calvin at five-foot-ten-inches.
The 2017 football season is vastly approaching, and the trio will be in the crimson and grey before you know it. Let’s hope this signing day leads to new beginning, and we can end with a bang. How about Luke Falk goes out with a National title, and keeps the train rolling throughout the years. Here we come, GO COUGS!
