Huskies morning links: Danny Shelton ‘dominating’ on UW defensive line

What a show at CenturyLink Thursday night, right? Maybe some of that buzz will rub off on the Huskies in their home opener Saturday (noon, Pac-12 Networks) against Eastern Washington.

Maybe, too, the dominance Danny Shelton showed at Hawaii will rub off on his teammates this weekend. Shelton said before the season that he felt he’d been “too nice” in the past, and he also wanted to be on the field more this season. With 12 tackles and two sacks — while playing 72 snaps — he certainly took a solid step (or two) forward in both those areas against the Rainbow Warriors, as Percy Allen writes about in today’s paper.

“I don’t want to make it sound bad, but his attitude toward practice has changed from a mentality to where he was going along with it to where he’s controlling it and dominating it,” Hau’oli Kikaha said of Shelton, a close friend. “And we know the way you practice is the way you play, so I’m expecting big things from him.”
