Businessman Thomas “Tom” Spetter enjoys sports in his free time, whether observing from the sidelines or participating on the field or court. As an alum and an active member of the University of Washington Alumni Association, Thomas Spetter has a passion for the Huskies.
The Washington Huskies football team ended its 2015 season with a 7-6 record. Head Coach Chris Petersen continues to work to build the football program into something that fans can be proud of. A high point of the 2015 season was when the Huskies secured a win against their chief rivals, the Washington State Cougars, in the annual Apple Cup; this win guaranteed the Huskies a spot in a bowl game for the sixth consecutive season.
The excitement at the 45-10 Apple Cup victory was palpable, and players and fans seized the moment. Defensive lineman and winner of the prestigious Guy Flaherty Award, Taniela Tupou even grabbed a giant purple flag and celebrated the win by running up and down the field. It was a moment every Husky fan will remember for a very long time. The Huskies went on to Dallas, Texas for the 2015 Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl, where they defeated Southern Miss with a final score of 44-31.
