Washington’s Price learns, moves on from 2012

TIM BOOTH, AP Sports Writer

SEATTLE (AP) — Keith Price threw 432 passes in 2012. Two of those, the final passes thrown in each of Washington’s final two games, provided the definition of his entire junior season.

His final throw in the Apple Cup against Washington State: intercepted. His final throw against Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl: intercepted. The result of both games: losses.

If Washington is going to leave behind the seven-win plateau it’s been stuck on for the past three seasons, it’ll need Price to be more like the quarterback he was in 2011 and make sure his performances from 2012 become an afterthought.

Price proving he can put last year behind him begins on Aug. 31 against No. 19 Boise State.
