Attention Husky fans! Just wanted to pass along some great news to all of you direct from ESPN. The Dawg Pack will be featured in ESPN The Magazine’s upcoming fan issue as one of the best student sections in the nation!
The basis of the article is the Dawg Pack Dirt info sheet which has been a staple of Husky men’s basketball home games since 2004. The writers at ESPN were looking for unique and interesting fan rituals that have become traditions at sporting events. Somehow, they heard about the Dawg Pack and learned about the Dirt that I originally created five years ago.
This is a huge accomplishment for the university and for the Husky fan base as a whole. In 2003, when I was a freshman at UW, the student section at basketball games wasn’t nearly what it is today. In six years, the evolution to national recognition has been absolutely mind-boggling. There are thousands of you who have been a part of that change and you should all be proud.
As for the issue itself, I’m not exactly sure when it will hit newsstands, but as soon as I find out, I will let you all know. For now, Go Dawgs!
