It was a slow first half in the 2011 US Army All-American Bowl, but business may be about to pick up for the Washington Huskies. The West jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the half as both teams struggled to move the ball. The first quarter featured just 29 yards of total offense, and the second finally saw the West move the ball, settling for a field goal after the East defense held. That’s been it as we’ve seen more punts than points thus far.
In the second half, a bevy of highly-touted recruits will take to the stage to announce their commitments. Among those are two Washington recruits: Viliami Moala and James Sample. Moala is, apparently, a heavy Cal lean while Sample is leaning toward the Huskies. Picking up one, or both, of those two would be another huge step for Steve Sarkisian and the Huskies.
Local products Kasen Williams and Austin Seferian-Jenkins are also playing for the West, though both have had quiet games. Williams registered a catch, but with the defenses dominating, it’s been tough sledding. With all the talent on the field, touches are hard to come by.
