Bring the sounds of Martin Stadium to your office with Cougar ringtones

If you’re looking to kindle your Cougar spirit ahead of Saturday’s football season kickoff, you can bring the sounds of Martin Stadium right to your desk.

Employees with phones connected to the WSU Pullman system can install custom ring tones with a few button taps. The spirited selections available are the WSU fight song and the line “and that’s another Cougar first down” bellowed by Glenn Johnson, “the voice of the Cougars.”

To choose one of the custom ringtones:

  1. Press the setting button on your phone (it looks like a gear)
  2. Scroll down to preferences and select it
  3. Select ringtone
  4. Scroll through the available options until you find the custom tone you are looking for

The fight song was an obvious choice for Randy Cross, a network and telecommunications senior specialist who created the custom ringtones in time for the kickoff of the 2018 football season. He opted for the first down phrase because “it was an easily recognizable phrase that was short and simple to work with.”

Anyone that has a phone with a display can also set up a custom WSU background. Simply press settings and then select wallpaper. The most recently added WSU spirit options are toward the bottom of the list, so some scrolling may be required.

WSU kicks off its 2019 football season at 7 p.m. Saturday against New Mexico State University. For information about tailgating, visit Transportation Services’ Gameday Tailgating web page.
