Huskies Physical In Day 2 Of Fall Camp
Steve Sarkisian's troops have already set a physical tone this fall, and camp is just two days old. The Huskies showed some bite during a two-hour plus practice at Husky Stadium on Tuesday, despite not being in pads. The tempo was also at a rapid pace, the sure sign of a team comfortable with the head coach's practice regimen.
Early on in practice, the Huskies directed their emphasis towards special teams and individual drills. But there were plenty of standout plays once the teams moved to 11-on-11 action towards the end of practice. One of the highlights came from Nick Montana, who is battling Keith Price for the No. 1 quarterback job in camp. Montana connected with WR Kevin Smith on a deep pass over the middle of the field, drawing plenty of reaction from the Huskies on the sideline.
There were plenty of defensive standouts as well. Safety Marquis Persley picked off a pass during team drills. DE Josh Shirley displayed why he's going to be a headache for opposing QBs all season when he broke free off the edge for a sack.
Several of the incoming freshmen continue to draw rave reviews from Sarkisian. Bishop Sankey again showed some wiggle in traffic, making several defenders miss (albeit with no pads). Austin Seferian-Jenkins also made some nice plays, and later discussed his transition to DI football with media members, the first time the TE has been able to meet with reporters since arriving on campus last spring.
