WSU legend Jack Thompson stars in new Twitter feature
Pullman, WASHINGTON — THE TRAILER is out. Legendary Washington State quarterback Jack Thompson and his son, former WSU tight end Tony Thompson, released the trailer for the first week of @PapaThrowsPicks coming this Cougar football season and it’s apparent the feature on Twitter will be must-see viewing.
Thompson will unveil his pick every Thursday on who will win throughout the Cougs’ 2019 campaign. But that's not the main reason to watch.
The Throwin' Samoan has a wicked sense of humor, something that comes through loud and clear in the trailer.
Thompson, a Washington State Hall of Famer, completed his Washington State career in 1978 as the most prolific passer in the history of the NCAA, (Imagine what he might have done in today's offenses, and with one more game on the schedule). He was the No. 3 overall pick in the draft, going to the Bengals, and went on to play six years in the National Football League.
