Leading up to the season, football teams will see plenty of heated exchanges and fights during camp. It is expected when players are competing for jobs. However, the Washington Huskies program seems to deal with those situations in a unique way.
During Friday’s practice, cornerback Jordan Miller and wide receiver Quinten Pounds were getting heated on the field before a little scuffle broke out.
But how did head coach Chris Petersen and his staff deal with the situation? With a little team bonding.
Yes, rather than running a few extra sprints or running laps, Miller and Pounds were forced to walk around the field holding hands. Adam Jude of the Seattle Times shared video of the moment.
Well, this is a first. Punishment for fighting in UW camp: pic.twitter.com/pQiGXqY6eJ

Ahh, some gold ole fashioned peace, love and togetherness. I’m guessing the coaching staff let Miller and Pounds know that teamwork makes the dream work.
Washington is set to open its 2016 campaign on Saturday, Sept. 3 against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Husky Stadium.
