The Washington Huskies are expecting big things in 2012, and they'll be led by two stars on offense. The loss of running back Chris Polk will take some time to overcome and get used to, but they will be in good hands with quarterback Keith Price and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
According to The News Tribune, Price has been named to the Maxwell Award watch list. Price threw for 3,063 yards last season as a sophomore, including 33 touchdowns and just 11 interceptions. In the wild Alamo Bowl game, he tossed for four touchdowns and also ran for three scores.
Seferian-Jenkins burst onto the scene as a freshman tight end last year, bringing down 41 receptions of 538 yards. He had six touchdowns and also emerged as a solid blocker as he continued to see more playing time. For his efforts, he's been named to the Mackey Award watch list.
Both of these players will be key members for UW this season, and their bright futures can only mean good things moving forward for the program.
