With the arrival of spring, the Washington Football team is already preparing for spring training. We have your sneak preview here
The Washington Football team is already getting ready for the 2018-2019 football season. And if there is one position which has the least “surprise” factor, it’s the quarterback position. With the announcement of Jake Browning‘s return, Washington’s offense will be one of the key factors in determining their ability to reclaim the PAC-12 Conference Championship.
But simply showing up this year won’t cut it, as the team learned through painful lessons last season. The 2017 season was a disappointment of sorts in the passing game. That passing game regressed significantly last season, which led to the team falling short on season’s goals. This year, with healthy receivers and a determined quarterback, the goal is to recover to near 2016 production.
What to look for
We know that the team had a turnstyle motion in pass catchers last season. With the early injury to speedster wide receiver Chico McClatcher, the Huskies struggled to get seperation from defensive backs. And on the occasions where receivers did get open, Browning was not familiar enough with their route to find them downfield.
That must change this year. And the only way to do so is to train with more receivers in the spring. The quarterbacks are senior Jake Browning, freshman Colson Yankoff, freshman Jacob Sirmon, junior Jacob Eason (ineligible 2018), redshirt freshman Jake Haener, and sophomore Daniel Bridge-Gadd. All of whom will have an opportunity to pique the interest of coaches.
