Spring Football Practice Day 5: April 8
The Husky football team just completed its fifth practice of the spring football season on Thursday. The Dawgs went indoors for today's workout as storms were expected. As Coach Steve Sarkisian mentioned afterward, he kept looking out at the sunny skies and the lake, wondering what happened to those forecasts.
Nonetheless, a good crowd watched as the Huskies held their second full-pads practice of the spring. A few highlights:
• During individual drills, tailback Demitrius Bronson delighted onlookers with his work against the blocking sled, nearly tipping it over.
• Defensive end Talia Crichton had a long return of a turnover for a score.
• Tight end Chris Izibicki made a terrific rolling catch in the endzone for a touchdown.
• In probably the most spectacularly play of the day, freshman tailback Deontae Cooper made a cutback at the line of scrimmage, broke free and ran 60-odd yards for a touchdown. As Coach Sark said afterward when asked to guess the distance of the play said, he could have gone a lot farther than he did.
