UW spring football is upon us

University of Washington football coach Steve Sarkisian meets with the press Monday and the first of 15 spring practices are scheduled for Tuesday. Washington will enter the 2011 season on a four-game winning streak, capped by the 19-7 win over Nebraska in the Holiday Bowl.

As in the past, spring practices are open to the public. Weekday practices start at 4 p.m., Saturday practices at 11 a.m. except for April 16 (1 p.m. because a coaches clinic is held on that day).

Here’s a link to the UW site that has parking info, rosters and more.

We buy most of our Husky coverage from the Everett Herald. You can read Scott M. Johnson of the Everett Herald in our print pages and online. Here’s 10 questions the Huskies must answer this spring, according to Johnson. Look for Johnson’s dispatches throughout the spring.

Here’s a story by Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times that targets some issues going into the spring.

Condotta also blogged on incoming freshman tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who has graduated from Gig Harbor and is enrolling at the UW for spring quarter. I think it’s still possible that you’ll see Seferian-Jenkins playing basketball for the Huskies. He’s a big-time rebounder with incredibly strong hands and an above-average passer. I know he’s never been dominant in the Narrows League, but I saw him two summers ago in Las Vegas when he was playing with Total Package and he was a beast.
