Washington Athletics Dots
- The Seattle Times writes about former walk-on Jack Enger who returns as the prospective ace for the Washington baseball team and who might have already turned pro had he been able to have a normal season last year.
- The crew at Dawgman pick their winners for awards from the shortened 2020 Husky football season.
- Dawgman has their early countdown of the top players from the state of Washington for the class of 2022 with numbers 20-11.
- Washington got a new preferred walk-on commit from Wilson Schwartz on Friday. He’s listed at 6’5, 235 lbs out of Calabasas, California.
- Ex-Husky head coach Steve Sarkisian was hired as the new head of the Texas football program. I’ll be wishing for the best for Sark who appears to have gotten things back on track after battles with addiction. But he’s put himself in a position where anything other than dethroning Oklahoma as the top program in the Big 12 won’t be good enough.
- The Dolphins got splattered by the Bills and so unfortunately won’t be in the playoffs but both Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed found the end zone and look to have the #1 and #2 spots at running back in Miami locked in heading into the offseason.
- WR Dante Pettis had a big day for the Giants as they came close to becoming the team with the worst record to make the playoffs in NFL history at 6-10. Pettis had a TD as well as a diving (maybe not actually a) catch which wasn’t challenged and so moved the Giants into range to kick what became the game winning field goal.
- Kicker Tristan Vizcaino made his NFL debut and went 3/3 on field goal attempts against the Seahawks in a game they ultimately lost by 3.

Goal for 2021: play on January 1, 2022— EDEFUAN (@Ulofoshio30) January 1, 2021
- Perhaps mercifully, Arizona State cancelled/postponed their game against Washington scheduled for this past Saturday due to COVID issues within the program. The Huskies next take the court on Wednesday at Stanford.
- Lauren Kirschman at the TNT had her 3 big takeaways from Washington’s loss to Arizona last week.
- The Washington women did get to play and were swept at Colorado and Utah on Friday/Sunday.
- Not great...
