"Senior Day is always a special, yet bittersweet, time for the young men who have provided a significant commitment to the University of Washington and the Husky football program," said head coach Tyrone Willingham. "Each of the players we will honor Saturday, in their own way, will take with them a lifetime of memories and the knowledge that they contributed something special to this institution and helped build a championship future for Husky football."
Among the seniors who will be playing their final home games in a Husky uniform on Saturday are a number of familiar names who have been significant contributors during their careers at the UW. Players such as multi-talented quarterback Isaiah Stanback, receivers Sonny Shackelford and Marlon Wood, tailback Kenny James and linemen Stanley Daniels and Clay Walker have been mainstays as starters on the offensive side of the ball. On the defensive side, linemen Brandon Ala and Donny Mateaki, linebackers Tahj Bomar and Scott White and defensive backs Matt Fountaine, Dashon Goldson, Chris Hemphill and C.J. Wallace have formed the core of a solid unit. Punter Sean Douglas has emerged as one of the best in the nation and Michael Braunstein is as consistent as any kicker in the Pac-10.
In addition, special teams and service players such as Michael Book, William Kava, Alex Mercier, Durrell Moss, Joel Nelson, Josh Okoebor, Troy Perry and Felix Sweetman have played a major role in the Husky football program.
