Luke Falk Almost Didn’t Come WSU
PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Luke Falk didn’t draw a lot of interest coming out of high school in Logan, Utah. At one point in his high school career, the quarterback seemed destined for Florida State, only to have that opportunity dissolve. In the end, his choices appeared to be Cornell, maybe Idaho and maybe Wyoming. Falk likely would have headed for the Ivy League if not for head coach Mike Leach’s arrival at Washington State. Even then, there was no guarantee of a scholarship or even an opportunity when Falk arrived in Pullman in 2013 and was seventh on the depth chart as a walk-on. But now Washington State (6-0, 3-0 Pac-12) is on a roll behind Falk, including a big 30-27 win over Southern California two weeks ago and a 33-10 win over Oregon last weekend that put the Cougars into the Top 10.
