Washington football heroes: Jake Browning

This was a close vote, but Washington football’s all-time leader in passing yards, touchdowns, and wins edged out Jake Locker in our first vote.

Jake Browning was a top-100 recruit coming out of Folsom, California, and he won the starting job before his true freshman season and went on to have one of the most storied careers in Husky history. That career included two Pac-12 Championships, the second-highest finish for any Husky in Heisman voting, and two blowout wins against Oregon that snapped their 14 game win streak over Washington.

During his four years at quarterback, Washington reached three New Year’s Six bowl games, including a matchup against Alabama in the College Football Playoff at the Peach Bowl when he was only a sophomore and a Rose Bowl berth against Ohio State following his senior year.
