    "Coach Passion" - Danny Razore coaches UW in Hunger Bowl

    The daily inspirational quotes have taken on even greater meaning for Danny Razore and the Huskies this month.

    Razore, a 24-year-old graduate assistant coach, posts a quote each morning on a whiteboard at Washington’s football offices. On Thursday, a day before UW’s matchup against BYU in the Fight Hunger Bowl, the quote he posted at the team hotel was from Albert Einstein: “Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others; it is the only means!”

    Danny Razore, who played on two Bellevue state-championship teams, has been doing his best to keep the UW football team in a positive frame of mind -

    Mission accomplished with a victory over BYU in the books! AND

    Danny will be coaching for the 2014 USC Trojans! Congrats coach Razore

    Myles Jack - Pack 12 freshman offensive and defensive player of the year

    From the Seattle Times, Josh Liebiskind

    Former Bellevue standout Myles Jack has been named the Pac-12 Offensive and Defensive Freshman of the Year. It is the first time since the awards were introduced in 2008 that a player has won both.

    Jack started the season as a linebacker for UCLA, but saw time at running back late in the season, breaking onto the scene offensively with 120 yards on just six carries on Nov. 9 at Arizona. Jack ran for 267 yards on 37 attempts with seven touchdowns in four games. He had 70 tackles, five for a loss and an interception in 11 defensive starts.

    As Jayson Jenks wrote in January, Jack was not always a top prospect

As the game wore on announcers were so effusive of Myles and his performance, calling it a performance worthy of Heisman of consideration for next season. In the LA Times, Myles is now known as Jack the Flipper. Kirk Herbstreit of ESPN, in a first, listed Myles in his list of top 10 team performances for the week.

    Henry and Jack shine on Saturday

    If you were watching the Husky's take on Boise State or watching UCLA vs. Nevada on Saturday night, two former Wolverines were making an impact on the field. Marcus Henry, #72 on the Boise State offensive line was mentioned as the "nastiest" ...most dominant lineman on the Bronco team. Boise State runners followed the blocking of Marcus all night.

    If you were watching the UCLA game, true freshman Myles Jack, #30, was flying around making an impact on defense. Myles playing inside and outside linebacker, recorded a couple sacks, pass deflection and numerous tackles. And typical of Myles, delivered a knockout tackle against the Nevada QB. During the game the broadcast team mentioned Myles could also be returning kick-offs, punts and would see action in the backfield.

    Another Northwest standout has made his college decision, as Bellevue (Wash.) defensive end Shane Bowman gave a verbal commitment to attend Oregon State earlier Saturday.

         The offer from OSU was the most recent for Bowman, who also held offers from the likes of Nevada, UNLV, Montana and Montana State, to name a few. But it was ultimately the Beavers that earned Bowman’s pledge.

         Bowman made the commitment over the phone to Beavers head coach Mike Riley. “I called Coach Riley and told him I felt that OSU was the perfect fit,” Bowman told Northwest Elite Index. By Scott Enyeart
