Seferian-Jenkins not worried about low numbers

TIM BOOTH, AP Sports Writer

SEATTLE (AP) — Austin Seferian-Jenkins wants everyone to stop worrying about his numbers halfway through his junior season at Washington.

A season ago, he was arguably the most dynamic, most important tight end in the country. He finished the year tied for the most catches and with the most yards per game of any tight end in the country. He was a finalist for every major award handed out at his position and a third-team All-America selection.

Now? Seferian-Jenkins barely cracks the top 25 nationally of tight ends with 16 receptions and ranks fourth on his team.

But the 20th-ranked Huskies are 4-2 and have an offense that ranks eighth nationally led by the nation’s leading rusher in Bishop Sankey heading into Saturday’s game at Arizona State.
