Former Loyola All-CIF offensive tackle COLIN TANIGAWA ’10 (6-3, 292), a three-year starter for the University of Washington and returning team captain, will start at guard for the Huskies in their season opener against Hawaii on August 30th. Also slated to start at tackle for U-DUB is former All-Serra League offensive lineman COLEMAN SHELTON ’13 (6-4, 281). Freshman JOHN TURNER ’14 (6-3, 273), an All-Serra league lineman for the Cubs last fall, is a back-up center for the Huskies. It is believed to be the first time two former Loyola players have started together on the same offensive line of a major college football program. Moreover, this marks the first season three former Loyola offensive lineman have been on the roster of a Pac-12 football program as scholarship players at the same time. It appears Coach Petersen has a Loyola High School of Los Angeles pipeline going at Washington.
