With fall camp winding down the Washington Huskies coaches and players are focused on the business at hand which is to get better each day and be ready for the August 31st home opener against Eastern Washington. With last year’s season a distant memory, the question is can the Husky defense reload after losing nine starters?
One of the biggest holes left by graduations is at the linebacker position due to the departure of All- American Linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven and Tevis Bartlett.
JOE TYRONE READY FOR PRIME TIME
Another player ready to stake his claim to the Husky linebacking lore is Joe Tyron the former Hazen High School standout who will be battling for a starting position.
REBUILDING DEFENSIVE BACKFIELD
One are decimated by players moving to the NFL is the defensive backfield. Gone are Jojo McIntosh, Jordan Miller, Taylor Rapp and Byron Murphy all starters in the backfield. Next men up as they say are Brandon McKinney at FS, Myles Bryant SS, Keith Taylor CB, Elijah Molden CB, and Redshirt Freshmen Kyler Gordon and Julies Irving battling it out for the nickle CB positon.
