Jake Browning tosses five TD pass for Washington to earn Uplifting Athletes Player of the Week

In only his third season, Washington Huskies coach Chris Petersen has assembled some young talent and already has his squad ranked inside the top 10 early this season.

Part of this resurgence for the Huskies is squarely on the shoulders of talented sophomore QB Jake Browning. The California native became the first Washington to quarterback to start as a true freshman, and is off to a sizzling start in 2016.

Browning threw for five touchdowns, 294 yards and completed 23 of his 28 attempts in a half plus one series in a home victory over Idaho to earn the Uplifting Athletes Player of the Week award.

After a somewhat sluggish start, Browning heated up in the second quarter with three of his five TD tosses to help the Huskies build a comfortable 35-0 halftime cushion. Browning recently stepped into a leadership role with the Washington Chapter of Uplifting Athletes by attending the 2016 Leadership Retreat and participating in the Lift For Life.
