PULLMAN, Wash. -- Cynics might say this is more about Washington State than it is about Casey Hamlett. Surely your average high-level college football program couldn't shake loose a starting spot for a player immediately transferring from NCAA Division II.
Whatever. Hamlett will let those folks debate, while he pursues the back half of his college career, and a story that seems pointed toward a happy ending.
The other day at WSU's first major scrimmage, Hamlett had a solid afternoon from his defensive end position, including a sack. He should soon have more reward for his labors.
"In terms of a scholarship," said coach Paul Wulff, "if he keeps doing what he's doing, it won't be long."
