The Huskies have had a lot of engaging characters over the years and one trait I admire is swagger. There's a fine line between bragging and having swagger and confidence. I'm reminded of the story about Reggie Williams first year. When confronted by the rest of the team about who was better he or or Charles Frederick, Reggie responded "I'm the best Wide Receiver in this room"
He promptly went out and proved this in practice and his first game (4 catches for 134 yards against Michigan's highly touted corner Marlin Jackson) and almost had a 1000 yrd season. The asset that champions have, that cannot be coached, is an unending faith in themselves and their abilities.
I'm going to be watching some of the younger players and seeing if there's that standout personality and swagger. There's no reason any player cannot play early. Football is about beating your opponent and the odds consistently. I'm glad Sark is bringing back passion to Husky Football. Some of the best teams are often the most penalized because each player is giving his all on every down. I want the Dawgs to play hard and clean and "know" they will get that win. Here's to a new era.
