  • Some very sad news today as we learned former Husky defensive end great Daniel Te’o-Nesheim has passed away at the age of 30. Te’o-Nesheim owned Washington’s career sacks record (30) when he left the program after the 2009 season, and in 2008 won the team’s Guy Flaherty Award as the program’s most inspirational player. DTN, as he was affectionately known by his teammates, was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft and played a total of four seasons in Philadelphia and Tampa Bay, and last played in an NFL game in 2013.
