Gaines story is a Huskies story

Now, this is not simply an article from a biased fan. It’s how some very objective experts see it as well. Earlier in the year, Gaines was rated as one of the best defensive linemen.

And he deserves every accolade. His story was not easy. Considered too short to be a top recruit at 6-foot-2, he simply stopped growing during his senior year in high school. He joined the 2014 recruiting class of the Washington Football team. That class was ranked 38th in the nation, and seventh in the Pac-12 recruiting classes for that year.

But these Huskies ignore the hype, and the decryers. Coach Petersen has convinced each player that a new week is a new slate. There is no carryover.  Suit up and prove yourself one more time.

That is the task for this Washington Football team this weekend. Suit up and prove one more time. That is exactly what Vita Vea and Greg Gaines plan to do this weekend.
