That’s Myles, of course. Myles Jack. The former Bellevue star that turned into a household name a year ago as a freshman after becoming a force on both sides of the ball for UCLA.
We don’t usually post about former area football players because, well, there’s just too many of them. But Jack, the top Pac-12 freshman a season ago, brings some attention with him. He chose UCLA over Washington (and many other schools), then proceeded to score four touchdowns against the Huskies last year and then let them know about it.
“That was just emotion, like you saw last week,” Jack told the LA Times. “It was immature, looking back on it. My emotions were running high and I felt it was appropriate.”
Jack also told the newspaper that he is working on controlling his emotions, especially after drawing two major penalties that helped Arizona’s lone scoring drive a week ago.
Another point of intrigue will be when Jack and Budda Baker meet on the field. The former Bellevue teammates are good friends, and Baker mentioned it during his recruiting process. The UW freshman, who starts at safety, took a recruiting trip to UCLA.
