Career:  Has started 13 career games, the fifth-most on the Eagle defense.

2011: Listed as backup at defensive tackle on preseason depth chart. 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: Born 11/19/89 in Oklahoma City, Okla. Will turn 22 the day Eastern plays at Idaho State. Criminal justice major.
