Spring Football Practice Update: April 22
The 11th of 15 UW football spring football practices was held under warm, sunny skies Thursday at Husky Stadium.
The players worked in half pads (helmets, shoulder pads and shorts) for their usual two hours. A good deal of time was spent in scrimmage sitations, including some short yardage, two-minute and overtime situations.
Among the highlights were a swing pass to James Johnson that included a stunning downfield block from fullback Dorson Boyce. Later, another fullback, Austin Sylvester, turned in a nice play on a short pass, scoring a touchdown from 14 or 15 yards out.
However, for the most part, the defense seemed to take the upper hand.
NOTES: It was the first day of the NFL Draft on Thursday, so there were questions about that afterwards ... Coach Sarkisian noted that the fact that Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford, who suffered an injury that cost him most of his senior year, was chosen with the No. 1 overall pick tended to demonstrate that injuries to seniors who decided to return aren't necessarily that devasting to their draft stock, an issue that arose with Jake Locker's decision to return ... speaking of the draft, a former Dawg who hopes to hear his name called either tomorrow or Saturday, DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, watched the entire practice ... another former Husky on hand, though from a bit farther back, was former center Jim Nevelle, one of the captains of the 1993 squad ... Nevelle works in telecommunications and lives in Denver ... he was in town on business and stopped by ... a reminder that Saturday's practice begins at 11:00 a.m., two hours earlier than the originally scheduled time ... for more information, including photos and videos, check out Friday Night Lights Spring Game Central here at gohuskies.com.
