  University of Idaho football's senior wide receiver Jeff Cotton is getting his chance to compete in the National Football League. Cotton officially signed with the Los Angeles Chargers as a free agent after going undrafted in the 2020 NFL draft. In his senior season, Cotton led the Big Sky Conference with 88 receptions and the Football Championship Subdivision with 8.8 receptions per game. "It just feels amazing. So much work, time and dedication has gone into this whole process and it has been a long hard process," Cotton said. "To finally be able to say that I'm getting the opportunity to play in the NFL means the world." Cotton had the opportunity to talk to a Chargers scout during the Hula Bowl in January. Cotton and the scout kept in contact a few times after meeting. "As we got closer to the draft, my agent told me (the Chargers) were one of the three teams I had a chance to go to," Cotton said. - Idaho Statesman

  04/13/20 - Mason PetrinoSr/2020, Idaho, 6-0, 208 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Former Idaho quarterback Mason Petrino will add to his family's coaching legacy. According to his Twitter account, the son of eighth-year Idaho coach Paul Petrino has landed a gig as an offensive graduate assistant at Lamar University (Texas), where he'll work under first-year coach Blane Morgan, who previously served for five seasons as San Diego State's quarterbacks coach. Mason Petrino, who graduated from Pullman High School in 2016, started 21 games at quarterback for the Vandals in his last two years after mostly being employed as a flex offensive player in his early Idaho days. He ended his senior campaign with a near-perfect performance - a 563-yard, seven-touchdown send-off in a memorable 60-53 overtime win at Northern Arizona. He was tabbed Big Sky Player of the Week and named an honorable mention on the all-league team afterward. In 2019, Petrino passed for 2,106 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions on a 62.4% completion rate. - Spokesman-Review

  Freshman Aundre Carter had 23 carries for 179 yards -- both season highs -- and a career-high tying two touchdowns to help Idaho beat Cal Poly 21-9 on Saturday. Mason Petrino was 13-of-22 passing for 138 yards, including a 22-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Cotton that gave Idaho (4-5, 2/3 Big Sky Conference) a 21-3 lead early in the fourth quarter. The Vandals have won back-to-back games for the first time since closing the 2016 season five consecutive wins culminating with a 61-50 win over Colorado State in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Cal Poly's Colton Theaker opened the scoring with a 44-yard field goal midway through the first quarter. Idaho got into Mustangs territory on two of its next three possessions but failed to convert on fourth-and-2 from the 35 and missed a 48-yard field-goal attempt.

Later, a six-play, 82-yard drive capped by Carter's 37-yard touchdown run made it 7-3 with 2:08 left in the first half. Cal Poly (2-7, 1-5) marched into Vandals territory on the opening drive of the third quarter but, on fourth-and-5 at the 30, Idaho's Tre Walker stopped Xavier Moore for a 4-yard loss. On the ensuing Vandals possession, Carter had seven carries for 55 yards including a 1-yard TD run. After the Mustangs went three-and-out, Petrino led an eight-play, 55-yard drive, scrambling for a 7-yard gain on fourth-and-6 before hitting Cotton for the touchdown two plays later. The Mustangs finished with 242 total yards and completed just four passes -- all to J.J. Koski who finished with 97 yards receiving. Jalen Hamler, who was 4-of-12 passing for 97 yards with an interception, scored on a 7-yard run to cap the scoring with 2:47 left. - AP College Football
