Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times confirmed the report on Aguilar saying that he needs to retake the writing portion of his SAT. If he passes he will be eligible to enroll when school starts, but he will miss Fall camp, and the first four games of the season. This is a tough break because this was a kid that was expected to contribute this season, and start next year.
Bad news obviously comes in two's because it looks like Anthony Boyles has some retesting to do, and will not make it in till January, and that is if he passes. Boyles is a kid who could have been starting by mid season, so this is a big blow to the program, hopefully both can get their academics in order so they can play on 2008. No confirmation yet from Boyles, so we don't know exactly what he needs to do to get eligible. These things usually have a few twists, and turns so stay tuned.
It seems both Boyles, and Aguillar are in the same boat, they both narrowly missed qualifying and have another chance to re-test on September 15th. If they pass they can enroll for Fall Quarter, and be able to practice with the team. Even if they both make it in they will likely redshirt since they will miss the first four games, and fall camp. Let's keep our fingers crossed on this one. It would be nice if they were available this year, but if they don't make it in UW will be under the gun to have any depth in 2008 at WR.
ET named rookie of the year
Former Husky wide receiver Charles Frederick was named 2007 Arena Football League Co-Rookie of the Year, the league announced on Thursday. Frederick, who played for the Kansas City Brigade, shares the honor with Tampa Bay Storm quarterback Brett Dietz.
Frederick ranked first among rookies in rushing yards (133), receptions (115), scoring (246 pts.), and all-purpose yards (2,129). He also ranked second among rookies in touchdown receptions (27) and receiving yards (1,385).
Frederick's 115 receptions stood eight shy of breaking the all-time rookie record of 122, set in 2006 by Kansas City WR Jerel Myers. He was also named to the All-Rookie Team last week and Rookie of the Month in March.
Frederick was a four-year letter winner at Washington, earning first-team All-Pac-10 honors in 2003 as a special teams player. He finished his Husky career with 121 receptions (sixth most in team history) and 1,735 yards (seventh most).
