After an anemic half of offense from the Washington football team in its season opener against Hawai‘i, head coach Chris Petersen will make a change at quarterback for the UW’s game against Eastern Washington.
James Atoe’s unruly black hair, partially contained under his white headband, brushes the ceiling of the Husky Stadium media work room. The 6-foot-7, 375-pound right guard bends down to listen to a reporter’s question, then straightens back up, towering over everyone in the room full of media members and teammates.
The Washington football team heads to Hawaii for its season opener Thursday, and the Huskies continued their game week prep work in practice Tuesday. Afterwards, defensive players and coaches were available to meet with the media (Coach Petersen and the offense will talk tomorrow). Here's what a few of them said with the opener just four days away.
Washington head coach Chris Petersen began his first game week at the UW with a press conference Monday. Video of that will be posted later. Also speaking to the media at the press conference were a handful of UW's offensive and defensive leaders, including starting quarterback Jeff Lindquist and defensive tackle Danny Shelton, among others.
