Chris Izbicki Q&A

April 14, 2009

One of the names consistently mentioned among Coach Steve Sarkisian's top performers in spring practice is Chris Izbicki. The tight end from nearby Kirkland is showing a lot of promise this spring as he battles for a position at the top of the depth chart.'s Michael Jeremiah talked to Izbicki recently about working hard to make an impression and other things about spring football. How do you feel about practice so far, especially as it gets to get hotter?
Chris Izbicki:
We've had a few rough practices already so everyone is a little banged up. It's been a little hotter so a little slower tempo but it was good. I think people enjoy coming out and playing in the sun. How do you feel that you are adjusting to the new coaching staff? Do you think you are picking the new system up?
Yeah, I'm picking it up really well. I was actually surprised at how well I'm flowing with the plays and stuff. There's a lot of new stuff to learn but I feel like I'm getting acclimated really well. With the adversity you've faced in the past, what does the strong performance you are having in camp mean to you?
It's awesome. I'm out here enjoying myself and just trying to impress the coaches as much as I can. I'm really having a good time and it feels good to be back playing football again. Does being a local kid make being a Husky even better?
Definitely. I was just talking to my dad. He's out at every practice. It's fun to play in front of the local fans.
