Stanback out for the season


The news couldn't have been worse for Isaiah Stanback. The Husky quarterback, a senior who was finally having the type of season kids dream about, is going to have surgery on his injured foot and his college career is over.

You can find out more on Bob Condotta's Husky blog and Don Ruiz's blog.

This puts a crimp in UW's season, but that is a secondary consideration.

Stanback is such a good guy (my impressions come from talking with him at the state basketball tournament a few years ago), it's too bad this happened to him. He's went through a lot in his time at UW since leaving Garfield High, and he deserved one year of success. He got six full games. Let's hope he heals better than new and this doesn't put a damper on his athletic future - because he should have one.
