Luke Falk put his NFL dreams on hold for one more season in Pullman.

Coach Mike Leach tends to always have an outstanding quarterback at the helm of his offense, but Luke Falk might be the one to find consistent success in the NFL once his college career is over. The 6-foot-4 senior has the arm, the footwork and, most important, the mind needed to sling the ball efficiently all over the field without making many mistakes. In 2016, he threw for 4,468 yards (third-most in the country, and in WSU history) and 38 touchdowns, tying his own single-season WSU record. The Utah native could have left for the pros after a junior season that saw him named as a finalist for various quarterback awards and as part of the All-Pac-12 second team, but Falk is back to take one last shot at leading the Cougs to the Pac-12 title.
