*** Academic Honors Candidate *** 

Career: Has 14 career starts to rank fifth among returning defensive players. His 14 starts have come in just 26 games played in three seasons, as he was limited in 2010 with ankle and shoulder injuries and a knee injury in 2011.

2012: Listed as starter at nose tackle on preseason depth chart.

2011: Named to the Big Sky Conference All-Academic team. Started one game versus Montana (9/17/11), but otherwise was a backup during the 2011 season. Four of his seven tackles during the 2011 season came versus the Grizzlies. Was limited in spring drills because of surgery following a shoulder injury suffered in the 2010 season.

2010: Played in EWU’s first six games (three as a starter), including Eastern’s opener at Nevada (9/2/10) as starting left end. He had a career-high five tackles in a 36-27 win over Montana (9/18/10) in the debut of EWU’s red Sprinturf surface at Roos Field. Cook suffered an ankle injury against Northern Colorado (10/16/10) that was going to keep him out an extended period of time, so he went ahead and had shoulder surgery right away after previously planning to delay that until the end of the year.

2009: He started 10 games at strong-side defensive end and played in all 12 Eagle games as a freshman redshirt. He made his starting debut against Western Oregon (9/5/09) and finished with three tackles. He had a season-high four stops with a sack versus Southern Utah (11/14/09). He earned a starting position in the spring as he finished with a pair of sacks, two forced fumbles and three total tackles in Eastern’s Red-White Spring Game.

2008: Redshirted. Was the team’s scout team defensive player of the week once.

HS: Graduated from Todd Beamer HS in 2008. Selected to play in the 4A/3A East-West All-State Game. Was a first team All-Area selection by the Tacoma News Tribune as a defensive lineman and a second team choice as an offensive lineman. Named by the Seattle Times as a “White Chip” selection as one of the top 100 prospects in the state of Washington. Was Defensive Lineman of the Year in the South Puget Sound League 4A South Division as he earned first team all-league honors as both an offensive lineman and defensive lineman. He had 50 tackles with two sacks as a senior in 2007. Cook was also honored on both sides of the ball as a junior, earning first team All-SPSL 4A South Division accolades as a defensive lineman and second team honors as an offensive lineman. He also played basketball in high school.

Personal: Criminal justice major. Born 11/19/89 in Oklahoma City, Okla. Will turn 23 two days after Eastern plays at Portland State.
