Posted May 1, 2010
A crowd of roughly 15,000 turned out for the first Friday Night Lights spring game in Washington’s history and saw quite a bit of defense with a little offense sprinkled in. While they were entertained with several contests between Husky coaches and students, they also saw the Purple beat the Gold (white) team 14-13.
, the Purple Team quarterback, led the way from a statistical standpoint. While he was shaky early on, he appeared to settle down completing 21 of 34 passes for 156 yards with two touchdowns, one a 31-yard touchdown to walk-on TE
as well as the final score, a two-yard strike to WR
for the winning touchdown.
Overall, the night was dominated by the defense including two interceptions, one coming on the goal line when CB
stepped in front of WR
to intercept a pass from QB
and then CB
nabbed a pass from Montana and returned it 26 yards for a touchdown.
“I’m definitely feeling a lot more comfortable,” a smiling Boyles said afterwards. “It felt good. Is it my coming out party? I think so, yeah. I feel a lot more comfortable now. I set my schedule up to revolve around football so I can study film more and that’s what has really helped me a lot.”

, who carried the load for the Gold squad.
Demetrius Bronson was the workhorse for the Purple team, carrying it 11 times for 73 yards while also hauling in one reception for 10 more yards.
led the way in tackles with eight, followed by
who posted seven tackles and a sack on the night. Boyles, who had the pick-six, also managed to post six tackles and picked up a
fumble that he returned 10 yards setting up Cooper’s touchdown.
“Overall, I thought it went well,” WR James Johnson said. “I think we really progressed as a team. We’re a lot closer. I feel like I can call these guys my brothers and that’s exciting. Now that we’ve been doing this for a full year and guys are feeling comfortable, I think we have a chance to take that next step this offseason and keep getting better and gelling as a team so we can come out and play well starting in September.”
’s coaching staff will now head out on the road for the start of the May Evaluation Period of the recruiting calendar while the players will continue to workout on their own and with the strength and conditioning staff.
As a reminder, there is less than 100 days until the start of fall camp and 126 days until the Huskies take on
in Provo, Utah to kick off the season.
