Willingham on Locker and baseball

Posted by Bob Condotta

Here are some quotes from Husky coach Tyrone Willingham on the announcement today that UW quarterback Jake Locker will play for a summer baseball team, as relayed by the UW sports information department.

"Jake is such a great competitor and I completely support his decision to play baseball this summer,'' said Willingham, who was a second-team all-Big Ten Conference selection as a centerfielder on the Michigan State baseball team. "He has always had, and will continue to have, a positive commitment to our program and to his teammates. That will not change. I don't believe that playing baseball this summer will have a negative impact on his development as a football player.

"One of the great things about our program is that we are continually adding great competitors. Having players, such as Jake, who have a high degree of competitiveness is such a critical component in our development of a championship program.

"I am excited about Jake's involvement in baseball this summer and I know it will be a great complement to his development as a football player and as a person.''
