August 9, 2012 by  

Johri Fogerson, a former Washington tailback from Seattle’s O’Dea High School, and ex-Idaho State players Tavoy Moore and Austin Schnizler are among nine transfers who have joined Central Washington’s football team, coach Blaine Bennett has announced.

Fogerson, a 6-foot-1, 205-pounder, will compete for Central’s starting running back job, Bennett said. Moore is a 5-6. 193-pound inside receiver-kick returner from Long Beach, Calif, who earned NCAA Football Championship Subdivision All-American status at Idaho State. The other former Bengal who is working out with the Wildcats is Schnizler, a 6-2. 262-pound defensive lineman.

Among the other transfers are Demetrius Sumler, a 5-10, 215-pound tailback from San Diego and the University of Colorado; Ridge Nielsen, a 5-11, 230-pound linebacker from Mesa, Ariz. and Brigham Young University; and safety Adrian Gallegos, defensive lineman Jake Stepper, kicker Matt Burke and tight end Skyler Andrews - all from junior colleges.

Further information on these players will appear in future blogs and Herald-Republic print articles.

Bennett said he expects all of the transfers to play this season, either as starters or top-tier reserves.

Central, which began preseason practices Wednesdsay, opens its season Sept. 1 at Texas A&M-Kingsville.

    Was Tavoy Moore granted a hardship? Reading up on him, I see he played 2 years of JC ball, and then he transferred to Idaho State. He played his junior season, then played 3 games his senior year before getting kicked off the team.
