Go Further Young Man
In summary, there can be no doubt. The 37th ranked Washington Football recruiting class of 2014 produced some major NFL talent. At some point, young prospects will start to take notice and factor in the outcomes.
Some football programs judge athletes by their physical dimensions, track and weight room performances. Stand taller, jump higher, run faster, lift heavier is all it takes to win the scholarship offers from many national college programs. But that’s not all for the Washington Huskies. Coach Petersen looks for the desire, the burning yearning in a young man’s very being, to convince him that the prospect deserves the opportunity.

Flattery Will Get You Nowhere
Earning a top national ranking is very flattering for some recruits. In their minds, they’ve “made it”. Work is now maintenance. But to the Washington Football Team, that work is just beginning. The program is not about anointing or coasting, but earning and vying. And for good reason. Everyone on the roster is expected to be capable of stepping up at a moment’s notice and playing. That doesn’t appeal to every athlete. But for those who truly want a football career, they wouldn’t want it any other way.
