Luke Falk is once again part of the “Great 8”

Second time this year the quarterback has been part of this prestigious group.

Luke Falk threw for 398 yards and touchdowns this Saturday against Arizona State while battling through some tough injuries. This earned him some national attention from the Davey O’Brien committee who honored  him as part of  their "Great 8" performances from eight top college quarterbacks this weekend. This is the second time this year Falk has received this honor having previously won it for his effort against Stanford when he threw for 357 yards and four touchdowns in a 42-17 win.

The Davey O’Brien annually honors their pick for the best quarterback in the country on December 8th. Falk is currently a member of the O’Brien watch list. On November 10th sixteen semifinalists will be chosen for the award which will then be paired down to three finalists on November 22nd. Falk was semifinalist last season and with a strong showing at the end of the season he has a shot at being a finalist this year. Fans can vote for Luke at www.voteobrien.org. Voting makes up five percent of the total balloting so vote early and vote often! No one from "Quarterback U" has ever won this award so let’s see if we can help rectify that.
