Sarkisian ‘fired up’ to serve as announcer for son’s Junior Wolverines game Saturday

Steve Sarkisian will be part of a local football game after all on Saturday.

His Huskies have a bye this weekend, but Sarkisian will take a shot at announcing his son’s first tackle football game on Saturday afternoon. Young Brady Sarkisian plays for the Junior Wolverines in Bellevue.

“I’m fired up for it,” the UW coach said after practice Thursday. “I told my wife that I wanted the bio on every guy, what his hobbies are, nicknames, all sorts of stuff.”

The Huskies, meanwhile, practiced inside Dempsey field this morning with heavy rain and thunder in the area. The lights then went out for “a good portion” of practice.

“No distractions. Keep going,” Sarkisian said.

UW has implemented the majority of its game plan for Illinois on Sept. 14 after “a really intense” week of practice. “And then we can come back next week and fine-tune it,” Sarkisian said.

Sarkisian was in a rush after practice. He has a flight to catch to southern California for a one-day recruiting trip. Many of the UW assistants will be on the road recruiting this weekend, too.

“Especially with when you had a good win like we had last week and you have a little momentum on your side, that’s helpful,” Sarkisian said. “It’s a chance for us, having a bye so early, to go see guys play that maybe we’re trying to figure out.”

Sark added that UW came out “really healthy” from the Boise game and “we had a good, physical week of practice.”

OL Erik Kohler was in pads and a walking boot at the end of practice Wednesday. “We’re just trying to get him motivated and get him going,” Sarkisian said. “We think if we can get him healthy enough, he can be a nice addition to the O-line.”

Sarkisian was also asked about faking injuries, a trending topic around college football. “You won’t see it from us. … You mess with the football gods, it’ll come back to bite you.”
