The people listed below are "In the Game!"
How to get in the game
Cougar fans can pledge money toward the Glenn Johnson Professorship for every first down made by the WSU football team at home games this season. What better way to support the professorship—and Coach Mike Leach’s “high-flying” offense. This is your chance to get in the game and join other WSU fans as they make their Another Cougar First Down pledge!
For example, if you pledge $2 for every Cougar first down made, and the Cougars reach 150 first downs at home games in 2012, your pledge at the end of the season will be $300. If you pledge $5 for every Cougar first down with 150 made, your end-of-season pledge will be $750. You can also make a pledge and cap it at a certain amount.
As you determine how much to pledge, you might want to know that the Cougars made 138 first downs in the 2011 season, averaging 23 per home game. Texas Tech averaged 26.2 first downs during Coach Leach’s tenure (that’s 209 home first downs during his best year and 174 home first downs during his lowest-performance year).
Why ‘Another Cougar First Down’ is a cool idea!
After thirty years on campus, Glenn Johnson’s reach extends far beyond The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University. As the stadium voice of the Cougars, Glenn’s trademark phrase “and that’s another Cougar first down” has been an important part of the Cougar experience. Now WSU fans can return the favor and help to leave a lasting legacy in Glenn’s honor.
The Murrow College at WSU is the first in the country to engage in a fundraising campaign that allows supporters to pledge money for each first down scored by the football team.
With a brand new high-powered offense under head Coach Mike Leach, this campaign allows everyone to get in the game in a big way!
It’s the only way to show your support for Glenn Johnson, the Murrow College of Communication, and the WSU football team in one quick pledge!
