An interview with Ricky Baker, a former Monroe Bearcat and current walk-on for the Washington State Cougars. Ricky played Middle Linebacker for Monroe from 2015 to 2017 during the most successful seasons of all time for the program. This was one of my favorite interviews so far as Ricky was very insightful about his time as a Bearcat and is a fellow Coug at WSU. We talked about his years at Monroe, the rivalry games against Lake Stevens, the playoff runs, and his journey to Washington State University.
