Washington LB coach Peter Sirmon said sophomore DB Shaq Thompson "can be as good as this place has seen in a long, long time."
"He survived on pure ability last year," Sirmon added. "Now he actually knows what he’s doing." Thompson dabbled in minor league baseball prior to the 2012 season and failed miserably, but his future looks extremely bright as a defensive back for the Huskies. "This year, I’m way more comfortable," Thompson said. "I know my assignments on defense; I know what I’m supposed to do on every call." Sat, Aug 24, 2013 11:22:00 AM
