Pac-12: Logan's Falk is Washington State's No. 2 QB

First Published      Last Updated Aug 08 2014 06:12 am

Logan High School product Luke Falk is the No. 2 quarterback for Washington State, Utah's first opponent in Pac-12 play this season.

The Cougars will visit Rice-Eccles Stadium on Sept. 27, and Falk will make a homecoming appearance as the backup to WSU senior Connor Halliday.

Some combination of other QBs transferring and Falk's performance has enabled redshirt freshman to move up the depth chart as a walk-on. WSU Mike Leach said he expects to award him a scholarship, according to the Spokesman-Review of Spokane.

"He's very relaxed," Leach said. "One of his biggest strengths probably, and really of anybody I've dealt with, is that regardless of the previous play, a great play or a bad play, he's very calm. He's very calm and has the ability to focus on the play itself regardless of the situation or what happened before."
