How excited are you to finally get to play this season? Every practice I just keep looking forward to the Syracuse game, getting in and making as many plays as I can. I went a whole year last year having to sit on the sidelines and watch the team, and when we couldn't finish a game I had to just sit and watch it go by
without being able to help.
Your dad (Matt) played at Washington State (defensive tackle from 1979-81). Is it weird for him to walk in here now and watch you play? Not at all. He's excited. He just likes the fact that this is the best place for me. It's not weird for him at all because he really likes [defensive-line] coach [Randy] Hart and this defensive scheme. He does a lot of business in Seattle [a school-textbook salesman] so he will come by whenever he can."
Major: "I want to go into cinema studies, maybe make commercials or short videos, writing scripts. I took some scriptwriting classes, and I like that. I took TV production classes all through high school, and that was a lot of fun."
What happened: The Huskies held a full-contact scrimmage in the morning, then mingled with fans at the annual Picture Day in the afternoon.
Gold standard: Senior receiver Corey Williams was the Gold Jersey wearer Saturday, symbolizing his standout play in practice of late, becoming the first player this season so honored other than RB Louis Rankin. "He's starting to step up his game, which is what we need," said UW coach Tyrone Willingham. Williams figures to take on a bigger role with Anthony Russo nursing a broken pinky that could keep him out up to four weeks.
Injury report: Russo had surgery Friday, and Willingham said that "everything we hear is very positive." Still, Russo could be a longshot to be back in time for the Aug. 31 opener at Syracuse, though Willingham said he didn't have any better prognosis. CB Byron Davenport is still limited by a hamstring injury, but Willingham said Davenport is beginning to move around a little better. Walk-on OL Robert Lukevich was apparently the only player hurt Saturday, reaggravating a troublesome knee.
What's next: Washington will take today off and resume two-a-days Monday morning.
