Locker’s Campaign is Underway

The Jake Locker for Heisman campaign has begun, with a blog-based web site and a mailing that has gone out to the media.

I like the approach here by Washington–start early, get the buzz going, put up an informative blog where people can get to know the candidate and then let the chips fall where they may.  Reminds me of what USC did with Matt Leinart back in 2004.

Of course, Locker’s chances will be contingent upon how his team does.  We all know by now that he is a top NFL prospect.  Can he put all that talent together and lead Washington back to respectability?  If the Huskies can get to nine wins and Locker has a big year, then I can see him getting to New York.  Whatever the case, this campaign is good for him–and Washington’s–overall visibility. 

Well done, Huskies.

    man look how low his wind up is. Terrible mechanics. He will never make it at the next level. Look at where his thumb is! Automatic fumble.
