Great leaders inspire greatness in others (‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Season 1 Episode 1)

By giving Coach DeBoer the game ball last weekend, it seems the players think that he is a great leader that helped the players and the team to some great results.

The Game Notes for this weekend’s game against Portland State include some notes from UW’s first game:

  • 21 players made their UW college debut
  • 2 true freshmen played: Jayvon Parker and Jayvion Green
  • 10 different players caught passes in the game
  • Before Michael Penix Jr. threw 4 TD’s against Kent State, the last time a UW QB had 4 or more TD passes in a game was when Jacob Eason had 4 against Utah on November 2, 2019. 4 TD passes in a game is tied for 7th in UW single game history.
  • 8 players made their first career start for UW: Luciano, Kalepo, Rosengarten, Penix, Taulapapa, Bright, Tuputala, and Perryman

Michael Penix Jr. had the highest grade from PFF for his performance under pressure in the Kent State game.

Roger Rosengarten had a great debut as this PFF grading would indicate.

So did Corey Luciano.

Two of UW’s receivers also had high grades.
