Washington State's Luke Falk: From catering to breaking records

WASHINGTON STATE quarterback Luke Falk as a freshman walk on at Washington State had a job with a caterer to help pay for school. No one at a VIP table one day knew back then Falk's name or his background when he took their plates and filled their water glasses, Sports Illustrated's Lindsay Schnell writes, not even the most important person at that table.

That would be Washington State athletic director Bill Moos

Falk groans at the memory.  And he has never brought that day up with Moos. But make no mistake, he's not ashamed of his journey either, writes Schnell.

"Originally discovered by then quality control coach Eric Mele, Falk was told Washington State had a dearth of quarterbacks and that he'd be given a chance to compete immediately... He redshirted in 2013, took the catering job in summer 2014 and was put on scholarship just before the '14 season started. Hearing he was going on scholie was decidedly anticlimactic.

Leach asked him to stay after a meeting, where he off-handedly told Falk, "Oh, we're putting you on scholarship. Go sign some papers."
