WKU spring football

13 04 2010

Western Kentucky has entered its final week of spring practice, with the first of two workouts this morning leading into Saturday’s annual red-white Spring Game. 

Rosters for the game were picked over the weekend, with defensive coordinator Clint Bowen head coaching the red team and quarterbacks coach/passing game coordinator Mike Sanford head coaching the white squad. 

Highlights of your white team roster are:

QB Matt Pelesasa, RB Bobby Rainey, WR Marcus Vasquez, S Ryan Beard, S Mark Santoro, LB Mike Gothard, DL Cole Tischer, DB Kareem Peterson, LB Josh Carter, OL Ed Hazelett, OL Sean COnway, OL Preston King, OL Mychal Patterson, OL Adam Smith, WR Willie McNeal, DE Bo Adebayo, DE Quanterus Smith. 

Highlights of the red roster include:

QB Tyler Bruce, RB Keshawn Simpson, WR Derrius Brooks, WR Quinterrance Cooper, DE Jared Clendenin, LB Thomas Majors, CB Jamal Forrest, LB Orlando Misaalefua, TE Jack Doyle, TE Tristan Jones, OL Derrick Elder, OL Wes Jeffries, WR Jamarielle Brown, PK Casey Tinius, DL James Hervey, DL Nick Hartnett, DL Kenny Martin, DL Galatian King. 

A few players will not play for sure in Saturday’s game, including sophomore quarterback Kawaun Jakes – who is still nursing his ankle injury that he suffered earlier this spring on the basketball court – and defensive lineman Rammel Lewis, who hurt his knee during practice earlier this spring. WKU head coach Willie Taggart did say today though that Lewis’ injury shouldn’t cause him to miss the beginning of fall camp. 

I’ll have a full report from Tuesday’s practice in Wednesday’s Daily News.
