Leach says focus is on basics
PULLMAN, WA - When Washington State takes the field Thursday for the start of fall camp, head coach Mike Leach says getting back to basics is the focus of week one.

While there is still a lot to work on during the fall session, he said it’s those basics that will help out his team all season long.

"The most important skills on offense is blocking, the most import on defense is tackling," said Leach. "It'll be accelerated, it'll be intense, and it'll be really focused certainly for two weeks."

Leach continued by saying that throughout the season they will keep emphasizing the basics during each week’s game prep.
