One of the more storied programs in the history of college football, the WashingtonHuskies have produced some legendary players since their inception. The Huskies football program has produced 748 wins in total, good for 19th overall in the history of the sport, and continue to get better every season.

The program has also seen 23 players be named consensus All-Americans, and is widely known as “Quarterback U,” due to all the NFL arms that come out of the school. A charter member of what is now the Pac-12, Washington had 27 consecutive non-losing seasons from 1977 to 2003, and have the longest unbeaten streak at 64 games.

In addition, their win streak of 40 in a row is the second longest in FBS history, showing the kind of consistency that few programs in college football can match. A native of Pasco, Washington, Michael Jackson would go to be one of the better linebackers in Huskies history.

Playing his football at Pasco High School, Jackson appeared destined to put on the Huskies uniform. He still holds the single-season record for tackles, with an astonishing number of 210, as well as the career watermark, which currently sits at 569 in total.

He put a copper on his college career with a huge interception against Rick Leach and the Michigan Wolverines in the 1978 Rose Bowl. The Washington victory against Michigan that day is one of the bigger upsets in school history.

To say Benji Olson had a solid collegiate career would be an incredible understatement, as he and Bob SAP formed one of the best tandems of any offensive line in program history. Olson would go on to achieve great success at the NFL level as well, but his time with the Huskies is the stuff of legend.

A native of Bremerton, Washington, Olson played his high school ball at South Kit sap in Port Orchard. A big-time wrestler during his high school days, Olson would choose the University of Washington to play his college football.

He spent 1- seasons with the organization, and was a member of the Titans team that would lose to Kurt Warner and “The Greatest Show on Turf” in the Super Bowl. Junior Mutilated, Wash. Archbishop Murphy.
