With graduation this past weekend, the Husky Football Department wanted to acknowledge the players (in the Sark era) for the past four or five years of their hard dedication towards football and academics. College itself is challenging enough, but these accomplished men were able to dominate both on the field and in the classroom. Coach Sark and the entire football staff are sad to see some of these influential men go, but are excited for what they will bring in the future. A big thanks goes out for all of their hard work and influence on the University.

Coach Sark announced a new role in the Husky Football Offices yesterday, and we are henceforth welcoming back a Husky legend who has journeyed through the NFL as well as the UW Athletic Department. Damon Huard quarterbacked for five different NFL teams in his 13-year career, and recently was involved with fundraising for the athletic department after he retired from professional football in 2009. He will take over the position of Chief Administrative Officer for the Husky staff and will mainly oversee player development and football analysis.
The University of Washington Softball team has been on a tear as of late. The Huskies are locked in a close one right now with Missouri in the NCAA Super Regionals, but last night the 11th ranked Dawgs beat the Tigers 2-1. The ladies have been powered by great pitching and defense all season. Last night was no different, and the nation noticed. Second baseman Kelli Suguro‘s diving stop and throw from the ground made SportCenter’s Top 10 last night. Here is this week’s top tweet from @UWAthletics that captures @UWSoftball‘s response to the accolade on video.
