Senior quarterback Jake Locker started the Huskies’ annual Spring Game on Friday, April 30, but it was freshman Nick Montana (above) who finished it with a bang. Montana, son of former Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana, completed 21 of 34 passes for 156 yards and two scores, including a 2-yard pass to Luther Leonard with no time on the clock to give the Purple team a 14-13 victory.
Locker, the UW’s Heisman Trophy hopeful, was 3 of 7 for 15 yards, leading the White team to an early touchdown. He played just four series.
For a round-up of the Spring Game, read Bob Condotta’s story in The Seattle Times. There’s more coverage on GoHuskies.com, including a photo gallery with shots from off-the-field activities like a hotdog eating contest featuring strength coach Ivan Maisel vs. a team of hungry UW students.
