Washington boots pair of players

Steve Sarkisian AP

In a press release short on both words and specifics, Washington announced that two Husky football players are now former Husky football players.

In the release, head coach Steve Sarkisian announced that Joshua Perkins and Willis Wilson have been dismissed from the football program.  The only reason given was, of course, unspecified violation of team rules.

The release ended with “Coach Sarkisian, nor the University, will have any further comment on this matter.”

Perkins, a redshirt freshman, was recently moved from wide receiver to tight end.  He was a three-star member of UW’s 2011 recruiting class.

The sophomore Wilson is a walk-on who the Seattle Times described as the No. 4 running back, but also “was being counted on to provide some depth this season with Deontae Cooper again out for the year with a knee injury.”

    I am sure that both jocks, will continue with there education, and declare their majors from ‘ don’t have to attend class studies, to TV Guide 100 to 500 level courses. English and Speech courses are not required.

    Sorry to hear this was necessary. This is not the way to prepare to play LSU. Of course, LSU has already done that to their best player, Defense Player of the Year last year, Tyrann Mathieu, the “Honey Badger.” I hope that Washington does not have to dismiss their best player because of bad decisions he makes.

    THUGS, Thugs, and more thugs!!! They’re everywhere! It’s so sad that all our talented coaches, who were hired to coach football (and make ‘men’ out of those boys…aka. student-athletes) have to be demoted to the role of being ‘housekeepers’ for their schools. Well then , I say: ZERO-tolerance…roll-up those sleeves…get-out the dust mops… sweep-up all that ‘thug-trash’ and dump ’em all out into the streets where they belong…..those momma’s boyz! What a ‘waste of time’ recruiting these losers in the 1st place!
