Anchorage’s Edefuan Ulofoshio is the most productive University of Washington Huskies defensive player from Alaska in 30 years.

The All-Pac-12 linebacker has averaged 10.2 tackles over his last nine games after making 13 stops against Michigan in a 31-10 road loss.

Ulofoshio has surpassed the century mark for his career with 114 tackles in 22 games.

Not since David Killpatrick in the early 1990s have the Huskies had an Alaskan reach the 100-tackle benchmark. Killpatrick, the 1989 player of the year out of West High, racked up 150 tackles in 44 games from 1991 to 1994.

Ulofoshio, of South High fame, has reached double figures with tackles in six of his last nine games, highlighted by his 18-tackle effort against Stanford last season.

That’s the most tackles by an Alaskan at the NCAA D1 level since Fairbanks’ Ward Dobbs had 18 tackles in 2005.
