A few readers today during the chat asked about some final numbers for a few Husky players — which made me realize that in the relative chaos of the Alamo Bowl and all that’s happened since, I’m not sure I really ever passed those on.
So here’s a look at where a few Huskies ended up in the UW record book this year (and yes, I did just largely copy and paste over the previous post noting how close players were to other records).
— Polk finished with 4,049 rushing yards, 57 behind Napoleon Kaufman for the school record.
— He finished with 1,488 yards this season which is second on the all-time single-season behind Corey Dillon’s 1,695 in 1996.
— Polk finished with 30 touchdowns in his career to rank tied with Rashaan Shehee and Mario Bailey for sixth. George Wilson (1923-25) has the school record with 38, followed by Joe Steele (76-79) with 37.
— Price finished with 33 touchdown passes, having already broken the mark of Cody Pickett’s 28 in 2002.
— He finished with a pass efficiency rating of 161.9 to break the previous record of 156.761 of Brock Huard in 1997.
— His 66.9 completion percentage is also a school record, ahead of the 65 percent of Steve Pelluer in 1983.
— He also finished with 3,063 yards moving him into second on the single-season list behind the record 4,458 of Pickett in 2002.
(And worth noting Price hasn’t played in enough games or thrown enough passes yet to rank on career lists for percentages, averages, etc.).
— Kearse finished with 29 career touchdowns, second in UW history behind Mario Bailey’s 30 (and recall that one apparent receiving TD this year against Arizona was deemed a lateral and ruled a run).
— Kearse also finished with 184 receptions, No. 2 on the career list, far behind Reggie Williams’ 243.
— And he finished with 2,932 receiving yards, also second behind Williams’ 3,598.
— Folk ended up making all 124 point-after attempts in his UW career. That total puts him third behind John Anderson’s 169 from 1999-2002, Travis Hanson’s 140 from 1990-93, and Jeff Jaeger’s 130 from 1983-86.
— Only one other career has made all of his PATs — Mike Lansford, who was 73-73 in the 1978-79 seasons.
— Folk’s 42 career field goals made are fourth on the career list behind Jaeger (86), Anderson (68) and Chuck Nelson (61).
— Folk finished 42-57 on field goals for his career, a just under 75 percent success rate that is third all-time behind Nelson (61-75, 81.3) and Jaeger (85-105, 81.0).
— Rasp finished with an average of 45.6 this year on 38 attempts that shattered the school record he set last season of 43.8 (UW’s record book says punters have to attempt 30 or more punts to qualify, so Rasp has enough).
— Rasp’s career average of 44.4 on 106 attempts is also a school record — second is Sean Douglas (2003-06) at 42.8.
