The Washington Huskies, entering a season in which they are the heavy favorite to win the Pac-12 championship, open fall camp on Friday as they begin in earnest preparations for their much-anticipated season opener against Auburn. Today, we continue our fall-camp position preview series with a look at the running backs. WHO’S BACK Myles Gaskin, sr., 5-10, 191 Summer arrival *walk-on OUTLOOK: The running game again figures to be the strength of the UW offense with Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed both back (along with the most experienced offensive line in the Pac-12). The combination of Gaskin and Ahmed could wind up being one of the best in program history, which is saying something with the Huskies’ strong tradition at the position. Gaskin, a senior from Lynnwood, is the nation’s top returning rusher with 4,055 career yards, and he is just 51 yards shy of Napoleon Kaufman’s school rushing record. Gaskin already owns UW’s record for rushing touchdowns (45) … [Read more...] about UW Huskies fall preview: Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed — best backfield combo in UW history?
First it rained, and then it poured on the Washington baseball team. Leading by a run before a weather delay of 4 hours and 31 minutes in the top of the sixth inning, the Huskies were outscored by 10 after play resumed, and lost 14-5 to Oregon State on Monday in an elimination game of the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. The Huskies led 5-4 with two outs in the top of the sixth, but the Beavers had the bases loaded. It was a dramatic point in the game, but before Stevie Emanuels could pitch to Tyler Malone, the game was stopped because of a lightning threat. Then, after some very bad weather, the game finally resumed hours later. Alex Hardy walked Malone, which tied the score, he then got the final out. That was just a temporary reprieve as Oregon State scored four more in the seventh with two outs, capped by a three-run homer by Kyle Nobach. Oregon State continued the onslaught with five runs in the eighth, then finally, UW’s first appearance in the College World Series had … [Read more...] about UW Huskies fall apart after long weather delay, eliminated from College World Series
OMAHA, Neb. — The Huskies waited the entire history of their baseball program to finally make the College World Series, and then on Monday they waited and waited some more, waited interminably, to see if they were going to stay more than two games. It was the mother of all weather delays, four hours and 31 minutes confined to their locker room, and when it finally ended, a triumphant, groundbreaking Husky season crumbled in the eerie stillness of the Omaha night. This was a schizophrenic game broken into two distinct parts, one a taut affair in which the Huskies had appeared to grab the momentum and took a one-run lead into the sixth inning. The second, after an apocalyptic darkness had settled over TD Ameritrade Park as a precursor to a classic Midwestern electrical storm, was an Oregon State rout, 10 runs scoring unanswered once play resumed. The overall result was a 14-5 Washington loss to the Beavers that ended the Huskies’ stay in the College World Series at the … [Read more...] about For Huskies baseball, this short stay just might just lead to a long future in Omaha
