LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) - Coach Mike Leach's celebrated Air Raid offense is rolling in high gear.
Washington State's deep corps of wide receivers has been making spectacular catches at the Cougars' preseason camp, which was moved to a middle school field in nearby Lewiston, Idaho, because of construction at the Pullman, Wash., campus.
Leach developed a national reputation with his pass-first offense at Texas Tech. But WSU struggled to implement his complicated Air Raid schemes last season, his first in Pullman.
To be sure, the Cougars gained 3,965 yards through the air last year. But they managed just 20 points per game in stumbling to a 3-9 record.
This year, a slew of veteran receivers should pay more dividends.
