Spring Preview and Raise the Woof will provide opportunities to meet the Dawgs.
UW's new coach allowed co-captain Hau'oli Kikaha to miss the first months of offseason workouts to pursue his passion: studying the culture and history of the Pacific Islands in French Polynesia. "Certain guys earn certain privileges," Petersen said of the team's top pass rusher and star, 3.53-GPA student.
Husky Football Spring Preview 2014
The new coach predicted this first spring practice with the Huskies would be "ugly." And in his mind, he's been proven correct. "We will get it, eventually. The eventually needs to be the sooner eventual than the later eventual."
The Huskies are taking two weeks off from spring practice for finals and UW's spring break. Quarterback Lindquist has three finals, including an acting one in which he plays a post-9/11 firefighter.
John Ross is now the sole wearer of number 1 for the Huskies. With the graduation of former defensive back, Sean Parker, Ross can be Washington's one and only on both offense and defense.
Shaq Thompson practices at running back on the second day of spring drills. Wide receiver John Ross gets time at defensive back. Running back Jesse Callier returns after missing the first practice. And Lincoln Kennedy plus Greg Lewis make the 2014 ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame.
From his standards off the field to the meticulous way he practices the Huskies on fundamentals to him frowning on French fries, new coach Chris Petersen is installing what he calls "a new culture" to UW football. The players are absolutely receiving the message.
The team is still getting used to the new standards of Chris Petersen and his staff. The coach announces John Timu is suspended for two weeks and Jesse Callier is away to correct academic issues.
Jeff Lindquist and Troy Williams will get so many reps during spring practice that begins Tuesday morning and runs through April 19, they may be passing an ice bucket as much as a football.
