    Totally agree, and I have heard that a lot of the FCS signings are indeed about telling their friends at parties that they signed D-1.

    The GNCA's best-ever player, Mike Reilly, was at Washington State, as a backup QB. He transferred to CWU and the rest is history and he's cashed out in the CFL, and was MVP of the league.

    Oregon State wanted Kevin Boss to walk-on. He didn't want to, and he also wanted the option of also playing basketball (which he did), and WOU opened the door. Concussions stopped a fairly solid NFL career, which included a Super Bowl ring.

    WOU wide receiver Tyrell Williams had no D-1 offers; he just got injured for the Las Vegas Raiders (still not used to that), but not until he had signed a $44M contract.

    I could go on ... former Humboldt State lineman Alex Cappa is a rich man while starting for the Tampa Bay Bucs.

    CWU has added another D1 running back transfer in Cameron McKinney from North Dakota (no, not ND State, but the other one). He played his senior year of HS at Garfield after moving from Texas. CWU should have an unstoppable running game with how deep of a backfield they have https://twitter.com/_longlive11/stat...72937399562240

I get the scholarship aspects of it, but more often than not, Washington and Oregon kids who go off into the FCS ranks are often not heard of again. Of course, EWU is in the back yard, go there. Montana and MSU have done a solid job with Northwest kids. But I've seen good Salem/Portland kids go off to freaking Southern Utah and Weber State to be mired on benches in a place where they don't want to live, only to quit and end their football careers.

    Florida Tech cut their football. One of their former commits just committed to CWU: Wide receiver MJ Harris. From Chandler, AZ, he walked on at ASU in 2016 before going to play in a junior college amateur football league in AZ (remember AZ cut their official JC football). He was then on the roster at NAIA Arizona Christian but apparently redshirted. So over the last few years it appears he has not really played at all at the collegiate level. But a fresh start up at CWU. https://www.hudl.com/video/3/1090633...185f0d4cd0ab6c

    The kicking game last year wasn't quite as miserable, but it could certainly use a boost. Hopefully he can provide it.
    Well he has one final season to put everything else behind him and have a fresh start. He was very prolific out of high school and he has what it takes. It will be good for Hegarty and him to have some good competition with each other for the kicking/punting duties.Maybe Hegarty will be kicking and Soderberg will punt.

    Good, CWU's D-Line looked undersized to me last year. Glad to see they're getting some big guys to fill it back up.
