Seahwaks coach Pete Carroll and son Brennan (that’s Carroll shaking hands in the picture to the right), were among those taking in UW’s practice today, with the Huskies spending the last 40 minutes in a full-scale scrimmage.
The highlights were the running of true freshmen Jesse Callier and Deontae Cooper (I’ll pass along stats later) with coach Steve Sarkisian saying later that if the season started today, each would be playing. Cooper had a 32-yard TD run on a fourth-down play, one of two touchdowns on the day.
Sarkisian said he wanted to get a long look at Callier and Cooper as well as the backup QBs, so Jake Locker played just two series. He capped the first one with a 29-yard scoring pass on a fade to Devin Aguilar. Those were the only two touchdowns of the day.
Locker’s other possession ended when a holding penalty killed the drive, setting up a third-and-15. He appeared to have Aguilar open deep on third down when he scrambled away from pressure, but Aguilar stopped his route for a minute and the pass was overthrown.
Carroll was there just saying hello to UW coach Steve Sarkisian and other members of the staff he knows from their days at USC.
There were no significant injuries and the lineups appeared unchanged.
I’ll have more stats and quotes later.
