Camp officially ends for the Huskies today, and gameweek preparation now begins for the opener against Eastern Washington.
For my story for Saturday’s paper, I also turned the attention briefly to the Eagles, writing a little bit about former Husky running back Demitrius Bronson, who will make his debut for Eastern on Saturday against UW.
UW is set to take the field around 10:15 a.m. and practice — a workout said to resemble a normal Monday practice — then take Sunday off before resuming preparation on Monday.
