Huskies are all smiles during Picture Day event after Sunday's practice.
Notes and observations from Day 7 at UW fall camp:
— About several thousand fans were on hand at Husky Stadium for the second open practice of camp, this the first practice contested in full pads. The melodic tones of Damon Huard provided play-by-play of the day, and them took part in the annual Picture Day event with fans on the field after practice.
— It was an improved day for the offense, owning in part to extended work in the red zone. Each of the three offensive units found the end zone at least once during the final team red zone period.
— On the first snap of the final 11-on-11 series, freshman QB Jake Haener threw to the far side of the end zone, where freshman WR Ty Jones made a nice adjustment around freshman CB Keith Taylor for a touchdown in a threes-on-threes series (see fan video below).
— On the final play of the day, from inside the 5, Haener found freshman WR Terrell Bynum in the flat for what appeared to be a short touchdown. The play was ruled off by an illegal procedure penalty.
