For my main story for today’s paper I wrote about the battle for the strongside linebacker spot, and specifically senior Victor Aiyewa, at the moment the leader at the position (pictured to the right in a Joey Anchondo photo).
As the story notes, the competition at that spot really starts to heat up today as full pads go on for the first time and the coaches begin to see who can do what against the run.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— Coach Sark’s site broke the news that in the team meeting that followed Thursday’s practice, UW coach Steve Sarkisian announced that five walk-ons would be put on scholarship for the 2010 season. They are LB Jonathan Amosa, LB Brandon Huppert, OL Daniel Kanczugowski, snapper Brendan Lopez and OL Greg Christine. All could play key backup or special teams roles for UW this season.
