Happy Monday Husky Fans! Hope y’all enjoyed seeing some live Husky football for the first time in forever.
To the dots!
- Saturday was a good day to be a Husky with football back, fans in the stands, and more than enough exciting plays to get the hype train rolling for this Fall.
In an undeniably crowded running back room, UW junior Richard Newton reintroduced himself with a typically violent 15-yard touchdown in the Purple vs. Gold game on Saturday. (by @mikevorel) https://t.co/8hngSGUGGr— Seattle Times Sports (@SeaTimesSports) May 2, 2021
- ICYMI, here’s a few clips of the game (including quite the kick return for a HC)
- A number of guys who haven’t gotten extended reps to date made big impressions on Saturday. IMO, Bralen Trice, Elijah Jackson, Devin Culp, Noa Ngalu, Jacob Bandes, and Taj Davis have a real shot at either breaking out this year, or are at least ready to make the leap when they get their shot. Looks like a few others would agree.

NFL Draft Dots:
- ICYMI this weekend in the Spring Football hype, the NFL welcomed a whole new class of Pro Dawgs. After the dust settled on the flurry of end-of-draft UDFA signings, it looks like 5 Huskies will get a chance to make their NFL dream a reality (Joe Tryon, Levi Onwuzurike, Elijah Molden, Keith Taylor, and Josiah Bronson)
Joe Tryon, EDGE, 1st Round to Tampa Bay:
Levi Onwuzurike, DL, 2nd Round to Detroit:
Elijah Molden, DB, 3rd Round to Tennessee:
Keith Taylor, DB, 5th Round to Carolina:
Josiah Bronson, DL, UDFA to New Orleans:
The #Saints are signing former Washington DT Josiah Bronson to a big rookie free-agent deal that includes a $25,000 signing bonus plus $140,000 base salary guarantee, per source. Bronson was in demand after going undrafted and New Orleans won out.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) May 2, 2021

- Am I the only one that misses the excitement & fanfare of the Windermere Cup?
Washington won the men's and women's @WindermereCup vs. Cal, and won eight of 10 races in total on Saturday.— Washington Rowing (@UW_Rowing) May 1, 2021

The traditional big crowds were missing at the Windermere Cup, but the “magic” was back at the Montlake Cut. The Huskies made it even more special, defeating rival Cal in the top two men’s and women’s rowing races. https://t.co/blqnNQG9yj— Seattle Times Sports (@SeaTimesSports) May 1, 2021
