Locker again teaming up with Run of Hope, and a couple other notes

A reminder that the Huskies will hit the field again tonight at 6:45 p.m. for their second practice of the day. It’ll be the 12th practice of the season.
Also a reminder that UW coach Jake Locker will again be a spokesperson for the Run of Hope, which benefits the Pediatric Brain Tumor Research Fund (more information here).
The run will be held Oct. 3.
This is the event that UW fans supported well a year ago, resulting in this letter of thanks from the mother of Kyle Roger, the 8-year-old boy who died of brain cancer in Feb. 2009. He had become a good friend of Locker’s before passing away.
IN OTHER, MORE MUNDANE FOOTBALL NEWS. …
— Nebraska sophomore linebacker Sean Fisher, a budding star, has suffered an apparently significant leg injury that will undoubtedly impact the team’s depth at that spot. Nebraska coach Bo Pelini is mad enough about the coverage of that (and a few other issues) that he is closing off all media access to the team for three days.
— BYU held a full-scale scrimmage today and Riley Nelson again appeared to put up the better QB numbers. But that pales in comparison to the big news there today, that BYU is going Independent.
— Meanwhile, looks like Fresno State will take BYU’s place in the Mountain West Conference and Nevada also has an invitation to join. UW is scheduled to host Nevada in 2012.
— The John Mackey Award removed Kavario Middleton from its Watch List today, making another tight end a happy guy.
More after practice.
