Huskies close camp with Spring Preview

SEATTLE -- While most college football teams wrap-up spring practice with a game, the University of Washington does things a little different.

The Huskies closed spring practice with a showcase called Spring Preview. It was an open-to-the-public practice that included some scrimmaging at Husky Stadium, but also stayed true to Washington's typical practice format.

Mercer Island High School product Jeff Lindquist tossed four touchdown passes on the day, including scoring plays to wide receiver Jaydon Mickens and tight end Darrell Daniels.

The Spring Preview brings a close to the first 15 practices for new head coach Chris Petersen at Washington. He used "hard work" to describe camp.

"I think the kids worked hard," Petersen said. "I think the coaches worked hard. You know, it's hard being new. It's hard to get lined up in stretch lines. It's hard to figure out which end of the field we practice on.

"Everything's hard, which is good. That's why we're here. That's why we came here, you know, for that type of challenge. I think the kids responded well and decided to go forward."

The Huskies won't hold another organized team practice until fall. Washington kicks off the regular season August 30th against Hawaii.
