The Huskies fall camp is in full-swing as the team prepares for the upcoming season. There were quite a few questions on the roster coming into camp, though the fullback position is no longer one.
Jonathan Amosa, who switched to fullback after starting his career at linebacker, has impressed many during the summer months with a strong work ethic, has earned the starting job, according to Bob Condotta:
Fortunately for UW, walk-on Jonathan Amosa made the switch from linebacker in the spring and has continued to progress in the fall, looming as the starter at the spot now. The sudden abundance of tight ends means UW can get creative with its personnel and use some of those players in situations that might have been filled by fullbacks, mitigating the lack of experience at fullback. When UW does use a fullback this year, though, Amosa figures to be the guy.
As Condotta mentions, the future of the fullback position in UW's offense is somewhat in question, especially with a lot of turnover to come after last season, though Amosa will be the guy whenever needed. Whether it be to block, go out for a pass or smash the ball up the middle to gain a few yards remains to be seen.
