Video slideshow: WSU QB Luke Falk's Heisman bona fides in 62 seconds

LUKE FALK took the Pac-12 by storm last season, putting him in dark horse contention for the Heisman Trophy this season.

Falk was ID'd as such on ESPN's SportsCenter a week ago and in an AP story at the end of last season.

Justin Ferguson of Bleacher Report also pumped the Falk idea at the end of last season, saying, "If the Cougars can keep up their forward momentum and pull off a few upsets in 2016 behind Falk's efficient passing attack, then he should get some Heisman love."

Those comments were echoed in April by Josh Nagel of, who said, "Falk's growth, along with the growth of the Cougars as a whole, could at least get him on the radar."

If Falk cracks the top 10 in Heisman balloting he will be the fourth Mike Leach quarterback to do, joining Kliff Kingsbury (ninth in 2002), B.J. Symons (10th in 2003) and former WSU assistant coach Graham Harrell (fourth in 2008).

Eight Cougars have finished in the top 10 in Heisman history: Ed Goddard, Jack Thompson, Rueben Mayes, Timm Rosenbach, Drew Bledsoe, Ryan Leaf, Jason Gesser and Jerome Harrison. Leaf, in third place in 1997, is the highest-ever WSU finisher.
