Luke Falk's statistics were off the charts in 2015. He was the nation's top-ranked passer in productivity last season. The Cougar QB connected on 69.4 percent of his passes last season, a fete which is even more impressive when you consider he tossed over 53 passes per game. Falk tallied over 4,500 passing yards, landing 447 of 644 passes, last season. He finished second in the PAC-12 for passing TDs (38) and only gave up eight INTs. Falk also led the nation in passing yards per game (387.3 yards).
Yes, all that is impressive. Now I ask you to set stats aside and look at his record. This kid is a winner! He engineered nail-biting, come-from-behind victories last season at Oregon, Arizona State (5 TDs), UCLA, and Rutgers. He took over the helm of a team that was dismal in 2014 (3-9 against weak opponents) and led them to a 9-4 record season and an impressive Sun Bowl win, meanwhile winning the Sun Bowl MVP honors in the progress. He finished first-team All-Pac-12, and won the Pac-12 player of the week honors three times last season. Read about Falk's Heisman chances here.
Falk is still only a Junior as he enters this season. Playing in a coach Mike Leach pass-happy offense, I am anxious to see great numbers again in 2016. He currently owns four of the top-10 single game passing yards records at WSU. Yes, over Cougar greats Ryan Leaf, Jack Thompson and Timm Rosenbach. Worth a slight chuckle, agreed. Now let's also include, Mark Rypien and Drew Bledsoe. Not so bad, huh? Perhaps he will make a clean sweep of the top-10 after 2016?
Compares to (Current NFL Player): Matt Ryan (Atlanta Falcons)
- Pinpoint accuracy, will fit nicely in a "West Coast" offense scheme that focus on short routes
- Reads through his progressions well
- Strong frame, tough, hard to tackle to the ground
- Good footwork, though not a scrambler
- Winning attitude
- Is he simply a product of coach Mike Leach's passing system?
- Zero snaps from center
- Weak defensive division may have inflated his stats
- Utiliting Tight Ends. Washington State doesn't emphasize them
