Former UW QB Brock Huard still holds the school record for best passing efficiency rating in a season (153.8 in 1997). And in something I missed the other day, he recently put some of those skills on display in this trick shot video and question-and-answer session explaining how he did it. Ted Miller writes that he was something of a participant, as well.
I’ll guess we’ll know the trick shot craze is really getting out of hand if we see one from Mike Salk.
