Washington State quarterback Luke Falk can add a new piece of hardware to his trophy case.
On Monday evening, it was announced that the star signal-caller was named the 2017 recipient of the Burlsworth Award. The award is given annually to the top player in college football who began his career as a walk-on.
It is the third season in a row that Falk was a finalist for the award.
The previous two seasons the award was given to Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield.
This season, Falk, who is the Pac-12 all-time leader for touchdown passes, finished the regular season for the 9-3 Cougars with 3,593 yards and 30 touchdowns.
