Nick Montana wins Spring Game with late TD pass

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, 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.
