SEATTLE - Sophomore quarterback Keith Price was named the GoHuskies.com Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of Dec. 26, 2011 - Jan. 1, 2012. This is the first such honor for Price on the year.
Despite a tough 67-56 loss to Baylor in the Valero Alamo Bowl, Price threw for 438 yards, tied for second-most in Huskies history and 17 behind Cody Pickett's mark in 2001. He had five touchdown passes, one short of the school record. He equaled a 92-year-old UW record with seven combined scores.
UW rolled up 620 yards of its own, fourth-most in school history. Price threw four touchdown passes in a game four times this season. Washington never had more than two games with four TD throws in season (from 1997) before this one.
Price finished the year with 3,063 passing yards, second-most in UW history. He also upped his own record for TD passes with 33 and nailed down the school records for completion percentage (.669) and pass efficiency (161.9)
Other nominees include: C.J. Wilcox (men's basketball) and Regina Rogers (women's basketball).
