Video — UW coach Steve Sarkisian

UW coach Steve Sarkisian met the media after practice today — you can watch the video below.

Among the topics:

— Sarkisian said Austin Seferian-Jenkins is “maturing almost daily” particularly in the time and effort he is putting into practice and film study, both at the receiving and blocking aspects of the game. “I’ve been pleased with him so far but I really think his best days are ahead of him,” Sarkisian said. “I think he is just really starting to figure it out.”

— Asked about ASJ playing basketball again this year, Sarkisian said “we’ll deal with it at the end of the season and we’ll sit down and talk about it and what it means for him and for us and the basketball team. … kind of have to assess at the end of it all.”

— Asked about Keith Price, he noted that Price completed 20-28 passes and said “it’s unfortunate that turnovers occurred, but if you remove the turnovers he played a pretty good game against a really good defense. … we’ve just go to take care of the football. He’s such a competitive guy he’ll find a way to do it.”

— Asked about Michael Hartvigson, Sarkisian agreed that he thought Hartvigson might have been able to contribute more this season than he has, but noted that with ASJ doing what he’s done that it’s hard to find time at that spot. He also said Hartvigson needs to make the transition of how he practices to gamedays saying he “gets a little anxious at times” in the games and needs to “calm down and relax and play the game.”

— Asked about the punt return game, he said Cody Bruns, Jaydon Mickens and Marvin Hall will all find time at that spot depending on what is needed in a given situation.

— And asked about the kickoff and punt coverage teams playing well of late, he said a couple of keys are players being disciplined and staying in their lanes and then making tackles.
