The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

The Sark era has begun

Cloudy skies, but few raindrops, greeted the Huskies — and the 250 or so fans who decided to check up on them — as they hit the practice field for the first time this afternoon under new coach Steve Sarkisian.
The team is in jerseys and shorts, with full pads not allowed on the first day.
The offense opened the workout with mostly running plays on the main field while the defense worked on the practice field near the lake.
Sarkisian was with the offense, right in the middle of the action, on at least one occasion loudly sending the players back to the huddle, unhappy with something.
In fact, there were lots of loud voices all around as the coaches — true to Sarkisian’s vow — appeared to be trying to run as uptempo a practice as possible.
In the most notable personnel move, Ben Ossai ran with the first-team offense at left guard instead of his usual spot at left tackle.
In fact, the first team O-line appeared to be Ryan Tolar at center, Ossai and Senio Kelemete at guard and Cody Habben and redshirt frosh Drew Schaefer at left and right tackle. The skill positions rotated liberally but didn’t reveal any real surprises with all the backs getting carries, including Chris Polk and Curtis Shaw. Jake Locker worked as the No. 1 QB backed up by Ronnie Fouch.
As the offense worked out, fans ringed the field standing on the track including former players such as Hugh Millen, Jason Chorak and Brock Huard.
I didn’t watch much of the defense, but word is DC Nick Holt could be heard across the lake in Bellevue.
I’m headed back out to the field so check back later for more.
