Sights & Sounds From Huskies Scrimmage
The Huskies held a spirited scrimmage on Saturday in Montlake, which also marked the halfway point of fall camp. And while coach Steve Sarkisian would like his squad a little healthier at this point of the season, he's pleased with how everything has transpired so far. On Seattle's hottest day of the year, the Huskies made the most of the 90-minute workout. Fans took advantage of the weather as well, with plenty of Dawg fans making the trip over to Husky Stadium.
Defense Had The Edge
There were no turnovers during the scrimmage, but there were plenty of hits. Greg Walker created a stir with his leveling of a Huskies wide receiver, preventing an easy completion. There were plenty of quarterback pressures from the defensive line, which kept Keith Price and Nick Montana out of the pocket and on the move. Will Shamburger had the best chance at an interception, but dropped a gift-wrapped pass, earning him a little razzing from teammates on the sideline.
The Offensive Standouts
Evan Hudson had the first touchdown, finding a soft spot in the end zone to come down with a 3-yard pass from Montana. Price scored the other touchdown, scrambling for 10 yards down the right sideline and diving into the end zone, a play that earned kudos from Sarkisian afterward. Austin Sefarian-Jenkins would have scored a 20-yard touchdown, but the play was waived off after an offensive penalty.
Don't Forget Special Teams
Kevin Smith leads the way with his kickoff return for a touchdown. The play was blocked so well that the sophomore wide receiver wasn't touched en route to the score. Sarkisian also had plenty of compliments for Erik Folk, particularly his distance on kickoffs.
Odds & Ends
After practice, the team had the typical routine of ice baths and media obligations. Then they boarded a bus and headed over to a local movie theater to watch "Conan" as a group ... ESPN personality Kenny Mayne was at practice and filmed a small segment with the Huskies, which he said would air Sept. 11 on "NFL Countdown." Mayne, we should point out, was a member of the Husky football team for a brief moment before transferring to UNLV. Mayne was assisted, btw, by former UW softball player Bailey Stenson ... The post-practice routine was briefly interrupted by a former Huskies player taking his new bride on the field for some wedding photos. Coach Sark joined the couples on the W logo for a few portraits as well.
