SportingNews came out with a list of rankings for all 124 coaches in college football. Coach Sark came in at 30th nationally and 5th in the Pac-12.

This time of the year marks one of the few periods the team has a bit of off-time, so what better way to spend it than involving themselves with community service and visiting local elementary schools? The next couple weeks will include just that, as some of the players have already visited the Children’s Hospital in Seattle, and Blitz the Sound is right around the corner. Blitz the Sound consists of the players going to different elementary schools to visit with kids and talk to them about things ranging from their studies and life aspirations to their ball security and football drills. It’s an exciting time to help make a difference!

The Pacific Northwest Football Hall of Fame inducted Huskies Dick Baird, Steve Emtman, and Carver Gayton into their 2012 class this past Friday. Gayton played on the 1960 Rose Bowl Championship team as a running back. Baird was a recruiting coordinator and a assistant coach on the 1991 National Championship team, and spent many years before that as a prep coach in the state. Emtman was also on the undefeated 1991 squad, won the Outland Trophy that year, and the Indianapolis Colts took him first overall in the 1992 NFL Draft. Congratulations for setting the standard high for Husky Football!
