The redshirt freshman cornerback has two intercepts as the defenses bounces back.
Notes and observations from Day 11 at UW fall camp Friday afternoon:
— Several hundred scattered fans were on hand for the Huskies’ final open practice of camp at Husky Stadium. The team was in full pads. After the offense’s big day Thursday, the defense answered with three interceptions Friday.
— It was the Byron Murphy Show on Friday. The redshirt freshman cornerback intercepted a high pass from Jake Browning downfield to end the first 2-minute team period. Sophomore Austin Joyner, running with the No. 1 defense in its dime package, had a nice breakup on a Browning pass earlier in the drive.
— Browning was sharp on the next 2-minute drive, capped by a perfect throw to the back of the end zone for Chico McClatcher for the tying TD. It was a rare highlight for the offense.

— Murphy added his second interception of the day during a 7-on-7 period, tip-toeing the sideline to haul in a pass that deflected off the hands of Andre Baccellia.

– Earlier in that drive, Quinten Pounds made a nifty one-handed catch while reaching behind his body on a crossing route. Dante Pettis‘ over-the-shoulder catch down the left sideline, in front of Jordan Miller‘s tight coverage, was a highlight during a 7-on-7 passing period.
