One player absent from the University of Washington’s route of the Boise State Broncos last weekend was star tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who was serving a suspension stemming from a drunk-driving charge in July. The 6-foot-6, 276-pound Seferian-Jenkins spoke with The Seattle Times after practice on Wednesday about putting the suspension behind him and moving forward with his season.
I’m ready to just move on. I think everyone here has moved on. I think the guys on the team have moved on, and everyone else has moved on. That’s the most important — what the guys on the team think and what the coaching staff thinks. All we’re thinking about is getting better every day. That’s a thing in the past now, and we’re looking forward to tomorrow … and winning as many games as possible this season.
I…think he’s ready to move on. Just a hunch, though.
With Seferian-Jenkins inserted into Washington’s new up-tempo attack, expect to see some serious points put on the board when the Huskies take on the Illinois Fighting Illini in two weeks. Seferian-Jenkins caught 69 passes for 852 yards and seven touchdowns last season.
