Spring game wrap: Washington
By Ted Miller
The backups made most of the statements during Washington's spring game on Friday night.
Nick Montana capped an 80-yard drive with a short touchdown pass on the final play to give his team the win. The true freshman made sure he'd continue to compete with Keith Price for the backup job behind Jake Locker heading into the fall after completing 21 of 34 passes for 156 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.
The ending, however, was a bit fishy.
Two players who were fighting to stay relevant also made statements.
Running back Demitrius Bronson rushed for 72 yards on 11 carries, while cornerback Anthony Boyles returned Montana's interception for a touchdown and recovered a fumble.
Bronson is fighting for touches in the Huskies' deep backfield, while Boyles, one of former coach Tyrone Willingham's most-touted recruits, converted to corner from receiver to get on the field.
It was a quiet evening for Locker, who completed 3 of 7 passes for 15 yards before calling it a spring.
