Keith Price, a.k.a. Teeth Price, has come a long way into his current role of the University of Washington quarterback. This Compton native came to Seattle to attend the UW to be apart of the Husky football program, and to learn under the expertise of Coach Sark and Coach Nussmeier. The Huskies received quite the student-athlete in the young man from South Los Angeles. Players love to play alongside him and just be around him both on and off the field. Always smiling, Keith’s voice reverberates through the huddle on the field and that’s one true mark of his leadership. Check out what Keith sounds like on the field in this video.
Keith Price played his heart out last Thursday in the Alamo Bowl as evidenced by his seven total touchdowns (three rushing touchdowns and four passing touchdowns), breaking the old college football bowl record of six touchdowns. He has the ability to read coverages and get a great feel for the game behind the line of scrimmage, and we saw just how effective he could be when playing healthy. ”It was great to see what we already knew about Keith,” said Coach Sark. In the post-game press conference, we also saw the winning attitude that Keith encompasses, as you could see the disappointment on his face and the responsibility he took for the outcome of the game. This holds true to one of the team’s mantras, “Expect to Win”, and Keith embodies that concept day in and day out. One can only be excited to see how this player is going to continue to develop at his position and lead this football team into the next year.

The players and coaches had walk-thru in the hotel ballroom this afternoon. Following the walk-thru they had a team meal and will be boarding the buses in about an hour. Game time is almost here. Here are a couple photos from the walk-thru:
The players just finished position meetings and will be back up again soon for special teams meetings. Just a reminder that kickoff is set for 8:06pm central time and you can catch all the action on ESPN. One more thing:
We are now inside 24 hours until game time, and meetings are done for the night. The players have the option of getting some final treatment before lights out.

Yesterday some of the UW Football players visited the Center for the Intrepid at the Brooke Army Medical Center. The players met with soldiers who had been hurt and are going through treatment and rehab. This was an extraordinary experience for these young men. ”It changed my life,” said Johri Fogerson. ”I will never complain again about my rehab after seeing what these guys go through.” The players and staff members came away with great respect and inspiration.
Today the team had the Kickoff Luncheon put on by the Valero Alamo Bowl. Both the Washington and Baylor teams were at the event. Following the luncheon, the UW coaches and players will go through their normal “Friday” routine in preparation for tomorrow’s game. Here are some photos from the event:
