"I thought it was good," Coach Steve Sarkisian said of Tuesday's workout. "I thought the intensity was really good today."
Sarkisian noted that being in helmets only for a second straight day, coupled with the natural enthusiasm that comes with the start of camp, means the players can tend towards the slightly over-zealous.
"In this format, they start clamoring," he said. "They want to get the pads on."
"The offense was efficient," Sarkisian continued, "and I've been impressed with a lot of our defensive players."
The coach said he's has been pleased with the play of several of his freshmen on the defensive side of the ball. He called out by name Sione Potoa'e, Princeton Fuimaono, Cooper Pelluer, Sean Parker and Gregory Ducre, noting that this list was only off the top of his head.
UW will be in half-pads (helmets and shoulder pads = light bulbs) tomorrow and Thursday and in full pads for the first time on Friday, per NCAA rules.
