Fans of the Washington State Cougars have known for a while that Luke Falk is a very private person. He keeps his public presence to a minimum, never had a (public) social media account and, even when he did talk to the media, preferred to keep it to football.
Today, the fans in Nashville learned just how private he is.
“I really only have my Instagram. I think my fiance likes when i post pictures sometimes, that helps her out. I’m really only close with the people I’m close with... I’m not into Twitter, I think it’s a pretty negative arena, so i stay off of it,” Falk said on Nashville’s 104.5 The Zone. The guys on “The Midday 180” talked with the Titans’ 6th round draft pick about everything from social media to his Tom Brady fandom.
“I admire what [Brady] does. I try to take what I can and model my game after what he’s doing,” Falk told the radio show. Falk is a big fan of Brady’s, and it’s only fitting that the two were taken with the same pick of the draft, number 199.
Falk downplayed coincidence of him sharing a draft number with his idol. He expected to go higher, but is happy to get a shot.
“I’m just happy to be drafted,” Falk told the show. “For a while there it was looking a little shakey. I’m grateful for the Titans to pick me up ... I think we were expecting to go in the 2nd, maybe the 4th at the latest ... The coaches and the organization took a shot at me and I’m going to prove them right.”
Falk didn’t just open up about the draft process, he (and really anyone associated with WSU) also talked about his injury situation for the first time since suffering a broken wrist.
“I played 11 games with it. You just had to change up what you do... I tried to hand it off with one hand, when you took some hits, you had to fall on your shoulder rather than brace yourself with your hand.” Falk tried to play in the Holiday Bowl, but decided on surgery after three specialists advised that path.
As for his chances to make it in the pros as a system quarterback?
“I think I’m a franchise quarterback and I can play ball.”
Falk also touches on his experience with Leach, how he visualizes play calls and more. Check out the full interview here.

But for now, Falk doesn’t have a path to the starting lineup and will battle Blaine Gabbert and Tyler Ferguson to be the long-term backup for Mariota.
