And so it begins. UW coach Steve Sarkisian will hold a press conference today at noon previewing the beginning of fall camp. Then the Huskies will hit the field for their first practice of the season around 3 p.m.
We’ll obviously have lots of coverage later. For now, a few links and notes. …
— One thing we should get today is a roster with names of some of the new walk-ons. Among those walking on the UW football team is linebacker Stetson Shearer, who played the last two years at Central Washington. Here’s a story on his transfer to UW. Also expect to see PK Santiago Lopez of Lynden on the roster. I wrote about him last January and it sounds as if he turned down some walk-on offers elsewhere to enroll at UW.
— Also, don’t be surprised to see former Husky Johri Fogerson turn up at Central Washington, and to have two years of eligibility remaining.
