A story published today in the Highland (Calif.) Community News that hinted that UW backup quarterback Ronnie Fouch may be thinking about leaving the Huskies in search of a better chance at playing elsewhere isn't true, Fouch said today.
"No, that won't happen,'' Fouch said this morning. "I don't know where they got that from.''
The story intimated that Fouch might be concerned about his chances of playing with Jake Locker entrenched as the starter for another two years or so. But Fouch said "everything's fine. There's no reason to be unhappy about anything. Most quarterbacks redshirt their first year and I'll get a chance to compete this year, so I'm fine.''
With Carl Bonnell having graduated, Fouch looms as the backup to Locker next year, standing the obvious "one snap away'' from having to play.
Fouch was headed to a golf game today with his father, but said he has kept in contact with former Redlands East Valley teammate Chris Polk while home for the holidays. Polk recently committed to UW after having earlier committed to USC. Fouch said Polk plans to come to UW on Jan. 5th to enroll and will be on hand for spring practice, likely to compete for immediate playing time at receiver.
"He's just a scorer,'' Fouch said. "He knows how to score.''
