UWANIMAL just wants to have fun
Meet the guy whose videos have captivated UW Twitter — and caught the attention of Kalen DeBoer.
He is 29 years old, and a 2016 graduate of the University of Washington, and he lives in the Seattle area with his wife and dog, a Goldendoodle. He works for an HR software company. He tailgates with his family in the Padelford parking garage. Some of his earliest memories are of attending games at Husky Stadium.
One day last winter, his phone rang. It showed a South Dakota area code. He answered.
Washington’s head football coach wanted to tell him he loved his videos.
You don’t need to wander too deep into UW Twitter to admire the work of @UWANIMAL1, a fan whose zany highlight videos have become popular enough that Kalen DeBoer watches them. The school even showed his Boise State recap on the scoreboard before the Tulsa game.
DeBoer told him: “We all watch them in the coaches’ offices every week.”
