Huskies Move Camp Under The Lights
Husky Football shifted to prime time on Saturday night, with the Dawgs holding the first two-a-day workouts of Fall Camp. A crowd of several hundred fans came out as well, and the Huskies did not disappoint with their effort. For two hours, Washington practiced with full pads, with particular emphasis on special situations. During the morning workout, the Huskies were in shorts and helmets, with focus primarily on two-minute drills.
No matter who is on the field for the Huskies, the aim has been to make plays. So when Justin Glenn saw a ball carrier bearing in on him during 11-on-11 drills, the junior safety threw his 206-pound frame at him, even if it meant losing his helmet in the process. This play came just after Glenn charged into the line of scrimmage to stun a running back for just a small gain.
It seems whenever the Huskies work on their goal line offensive/defensive packages, both sides of the ball amp up the intensity. After the offense scored a pair of touchdowns, including a Nick Montana to Evan Hudson connection on play-action, the defense stepped up to the challenge with several big-time stops in short-yardage situations.
Bishop Sankey has received plenty of compliments for his play in practice, and the freshman responded with another strong effort on Saturday. His best highlight came near the end of the workout, when he took a handoff and scooted 35 yards on a shifty run down field.
Play Of The Day
Austin Sefarian-Jenkins for his diving, juggling catch (in traffic, no less) on a skinny post route for a touchdown, much to the delight of the fans in attendance.
Typically after practice, the quarterbacks will line up on the 35 and heave balls at the goal posts. Coach Sark, a former college QB, is usually in the group as well. The winner on Saturday night was walk-on QB Wil Smith, a freshman from Los Altos, Calif., for hitting the bar on consecutive throws.
