Washington State football: A bigger Luke Falk this spring

ONE OF LUKE FALK’s goals this spring and offseason has been to put some weight onto his 6-foot-4 frame. CF.C asked Washington State's star quarterback how that's going.

As a third-year sophomore on last year’s official roster, Falk was listed at 6-4, 205 pounds.

“I’m about 215 right now, just kinda steady -- I want to be about 225 for the season probably,” Falk told CF.C.

Falk, known for meticulous tracking of a highly regimented diet, said he generally gets his protein from chicken, eggs, grass-fed steaks and salmon.

“You’ve just got to eat healthy and eat as much of it as you can,” said Falk.  “We’re working out a lot so you’ve got to take in a lot of calories.”

Asked to list what all he ate the day before we talked to him, Falk said tongue-in-cheek there wasn’t enough time.

“A lot of veggies, good healthy fats. I eat a lot so I don’t know if I could (list it all). I track it all on my app,” said Falk.

FALK LED THE nation in passing yards per game (380.5) in 2015, tossed a program record 38 touchdowns against just eight interceptions and finds himself in the Heisman conversation heading into his junior season. He was also just named Team MVP at Thursday night's awards banquet.

Falk doesn't mind the spotlight. He's a highly successful quarterback coming off a 9-4 season and just halfway through his college career -- it comes with the territory. But he wouldn't mind seeing that spotlight widened.

"Last year was a good team season, hopefully we're going to build on it as a team this year. So if you could make (the article) more about the team instead of me, that would be great," said Falk.

We’ll have much more from Falk coming Monday on CF.C.
