Forest Returns to Form <<
REID FOREST OUTSTANDING - SCOUT - COUGAR.COMCOUGAR PUNTER - Reid Forrest, Wash. St. P - WA has been nothing short of outstanding since returning from the ankle break that kept him on the sidelines in the opener against Oklahoma State. Over the last two weeks he’s booted the ball 12 times, averaging 43.9 yards per kick. You’d think that glossy number would have him ranked among the national punting leaders.Alas, if you check out the NCAA’s stats list, the sophomore from Ephrata is nowhere to be found. His absence is explained in the fine print. To be included among the leaders in any statistical category a player must have appeared in at least 75 percent of his team’s games. Forrest, because he missed Week 1, has only appeared in 66 percent, so we’ll look for his national emergence next week after the PSU game.If Forrest were eligible for the punting list this week, he’d rank No. 17 in the country.
