PLAYERS ON THE RISE: The wide receiver tandem of Spencer Hafoka and Luke Ashworth continue to impress. Both players recently returned from missions, but based on their performances in spring drills, they appear poised to vie for playing time in the fall.
INJURY REPORT: Linebacker Terrance Hooks, who suffered a torn patella tendon in his left knee during Thursday's practice, is expected to be out 6 to 8 months after undergoing surgery. Freshman defensive back Brannon Brooks sprained his ankle during Friday's scrimmage.
NOTES: Among the hundreds of former Cougars who attended Alumni Day festivities that were spotted at Friday's scrimmage at LaVell Edwards Stadium were Brady Poppinga, Margin Hooks, Scott Collie, Mike Chronister, Cameron Jensen, Chad Lewis, Justin Luettgerodt, Reno Mahe, Bryan Kehl, Jared McLaughlin, Hans Olsen and Aaron Wagner.
