U Dub WR John Ross Breaks 40 Yard Dash Record at NFL Combine!


March 6, 2017

2016 was a fantastic year to be a Huskies football fan.  "Jake Browning to John Ross."  That's a phrase we heard a lot over the season and it eventually helped the Dawgs make an appearance in the 2nd year of the College Football Playoffs.  

I was hanging in The Zone at one of the games early in the season.  I remember chatting it up with another fan I had just met and I was saying that I thought John Ross would be a top 10 pick in the NFL Draft.  The dude respectfully disagreed.  Not because he didn't think John had the skill, it was more of a "Husky players don't get that kind of respect" argument.  Well, after the NFL Combine over the weekend, I might end up looking like a freakin' soothsayer because the ONE player EVERYONE was talking about... was John Ross.  The former Husky ended breaking the record for FASTEST 40 yard dash time EVER at the combine with a blazing time of 4.22 seconds.  DAYUMN!
