Before the game, players were mingling with Husky season ticket holders and fans, taking pictures, signing autographs and "pressing the flesh" as they say in political jargon.
Once they got down the business of putting on the pads, the players ran through several individual and team drills before they settled down and did a lot of situational and live scrimmaging.
By the end of the day, the Purple Team had defeated the White Team in a scrimmage that totaled just under 80 plays, led by QB Jake Browning who went 6 of 10 for 47 yards and RB Sean McGrew who totaled six carries for 31 yards and the game's only touchdown a nifty 17-yard scamper off the left side that was well-blocked by the receivers on that side of the field.
Some of the players who had standout plays were as follows...
-- TE Drew Sample had a nice 19-yard reception that extended a drive.
-- DL Levi Onwuzurike continued to show his potential by getting off the snap several times and wreaking havoc along the front for the opposing offense.
-- LB Tevis Bartlett didn't put up big numbers statwise, but he spent a lot of time in the offensive backfield, forcing the quarterbacks to step up several times and he also recovered a fumble.
-- DE Ryan Bowman had two sacks and forced a fumble on the day.
-- RB Myles Gaskin showed outstanding balance and patience on a couple of runs, finishing the day with four carries for 24 yards.
