The Washington State Cougars had a surprising 2015 season that saw them finish 9-4 and nearly miss winning the PAC-12 North division. They wrapped up their season with a win over Miami in the Sun Bowl on Saturday and it looks like they will be getting one big weapon back for the 2016 season.
The Cougars under head coach Mike Leach threw the ball and threw it A LOT this season. One of the biggest players they had in the passing game was wide receiver Gabe Marks, who announced on Sunday that he would be returning to the school for his senior season.
Marks was one of the country’s best receivers this season as he caught 104 passes for 1,192 yards and 15 touchdowns. His 111 yards and two touchdowns helped the Cougars pull off a monumental upset over the Oregon Ducks earlier this season.
I’m sure Leach and quarterback Luke Falk are both pretty happy to be getting Marks back for one more season.
