Leader of the Pac: How WSU’s Luke Falk defied the odds to become a Cougar legend

Quarterback Luke Falk stands on the field after helping the Washington State University Cougars defeat the University of Utah Utes at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City Saturday November 11, 2017. His previous experience at Rice-Eccles was bittersweet. In 2011, Falk was a junior at Logan High School and deemed ineligible to play due to a school transfer that didn’t work out. They went on to win the state championship at Rice-Eccles, and Falk could only film it, since he was barred from playing. 204180

But even as records fall left and right and the Cougars pile up W’s, this senior year hasn’t gone as smoothly as Falk had hoped. Perhaps that’s to be expected as he has had to fight for every shred of success he’s enjoyed.
