Happy Tuesday, everyone.
The Huskies, on spring break this week, return to practice a week from today to start the second half of spring ball. The next day, April 2, UW will host its Pro Day starting at 11:30 a.m, with Bishop Sankey and Keith Price among the 2013 seniors expected to participate. Until then, I’m working on a couple other projects, including a feature on an incoming UW signee.
- A nice read on the role of graduate assistant coaches in college football, including comments from new Washington GA Gerald Alexander. From the story:
For someone who has gone from the peak of the football mountain as an NFL player and enjoying all of the luxuries that come with that job, hitting the reset button isn’t an easy thing to do.
“A lot of it has to do with humility,” Alexander said. “You have a lot of guys who play in the NFL who’ve been coached by some of the best in the business, and then they think that they can just coach. This is a totally different business and a totally different profession. It’s not about what you know, it’s about what you can teach.”
- Sankey will take part in UW’s Pro Day next week and then that night he’s scheduled to sign autographs for one hour at Mill Creek Sports. The cost per autograph is $39.
- Halfway through Colorado spring practices, starting QB Sefo Liufau, a Tacoma native, is getting a push from backup Jordan Gehrke.
- Arizona State coach Todd Graham had a bold prediction for his offense next season: “I think we’ll be the best we’ve ever been.”
