04/04/2014 - 2014 Pro Days: QB Keith Price is right at Washington workout...After being shunned by the Combine selection committee, Price had to enjoy a strong performance at his Pro Day and he delivered, demonstrating very good mobility, accuracy and his underrated arm strength throughout the throwing session. Price, who measured in at 6-1 (even) and 204 pounds, started of the workout in confident fashion, delivering strikes on several deep throws to quickly erase any doubts about his arm strength. Wearing a baseball cap that he'd had made special for this workout emblazoned with the words, "Don't Doubt Me," Price zipped through quarterback coach Steve Calhoun's orchestrated workout, showing off the ability that helped him complete 64% of his passes for 8,757 yards and 73 touchdowns against 30 interceptions in three starting seasons under former head coach Steve Sarkisian. Price told reporters following the workout that he was surprised by criticism of his velocity. "I've always had arm strength," Price said. "I like to throw catchable balls. If I have to throw [the ball] through a window I can do that."
Several scouts leaving Washington's Pro Day had complimentary words for his workout. Most stopped short, however, of characterizing the session as good enough to get him drafted. As one scout put it, "It was a good workout and he's a good player. He's fighting against a tough class of quarterbacks, though." Price, who is currently listed as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 23 rated passer, almost surely guaranteed himself a free agent tryout with a team with his performance, if he isn't drafted outright. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
12/03/2013 - 2013 ALL-PAC-12 HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): QB Keith Price, Sr.,...Has been selected All-Pac 12 Honorable Mention for the 2013 college football season as voted on by the Pac-12 Head football coaches. - Washington football
11/16/2013 - Washington quarterback Keith Price is uncertain how long he'll be sidelined after leaving the Huskies' game against No. 13 UCLA at halftime Friday night with an injured shoulder. Price will have an MRI on his shoulder Saturday in Seattle after the Huskies (6-4, 3-4 Pac-12) return home from their 41-31 loss. X-rays on Price's shoulder revealed nothing, and the three-year starter tried to remain optimistic he'll be able to play in Washington's final two regular-season games, against Oregon State and Washington State. ''I thought I was going to be able to keep on going (against UCLA),'' Price said. ''It's unfortunate. I'm disappointed, and it hurts. ... I'm proud of the way the guys competed at the end, (but) it's kind of hard playing without your starting quarterback.''
Price was 10 for 18 for 181 yards and a TD pass to Jaydon Mickens, keeping the Huskies competitive after they fell behind 14-0 in the opening minutes. Price is Washington's career lead with 73 touchdown passes. Price thinks he was hurt on one of the Huskies' final plays of the first half. He attempted to warm up on the sideline after the injury, but winced in pain. ''I got hit twice in a row, and I'm not really sure which hit it was, but it hurt pretty bad,'' Price said. - AP Sports
11/10/2013 - Keith Price threw for two touchdowns and ran for one as part of a huge first half where Washington racked up nearly 500 yards on offense, and the Huskies routed Colorado 59-7 to become bowl eligible for the fourth straight season. Price was masterful in the first half. He completed 22 of 29 throws for 312 yards and two scores. He found backup tight end Joshua Perkins sliding out the backdoor for a 6-yard TD pass that gave the Huskies a 17-7 lead, then hit Austin Seferian-Jenkins on a 15-yard jump ball on the last scrimmage play of the first half for a 31-7 lead at the break.
Washington (6-3, 3-3 Pac-12) ran 59 plays and finished with 464 total yards in the first half. Sefo Liufau found Paul Richardson for a 53-yard touchdown in the first quarter that served as the lone highlight for the Buffaloes. Colorado (3-6, 0-6) lost its 14th straight conference game, 13 of them by more than 20 points. Washington's 59 points were the fifth most since 1945. They finished with 628 total yards, the fourth time this season topping 600 and did not attempt a pass in the second half. Washington added 21 third-quarter points and ran only five offensive plays. - AP Sports
10/08/2013 - As for the Huskies, even in defeat they seemed to cement their rep as a legit top-15 team. Price, one of the great bounce-back stories of 2013, made plays all night even if his receivers dropped several on-target throws, including a sweet third-down pass downfield to touted tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins that the All-American candidate dropped. The play set up a controversial fourth down reception that officials later reversed, ending the game. Price, by the way, played most of the second half with a banged up thumb, the senior QB later acknowledged.
"I can't say enough about Keith Price," said Shaw. "Athletic, smart, great kid, tough competitor. We probably should have had four to five more sacks tonight, but we couldn't bring him down. He's that good." "I thought our kids exuded enormous hearts," Steve Sarkisian said. "Thought they played hard, thought they showed the fight that is innate in this program. It's not superficial. I think the heart they displayed tonight to battle back against an excellent football team, I couldn't be more proud of to be their head coach and the way they played and the fight they showed. "It's unfortunate the game had to come down to a judgment call like that. That part was unfortunate because it was two good football teams battling and competing with one another, and I wish the game would have gotten won on the field and not in the booth upstairs with some guy that didn't get to feel the emotion and the hard fought football game that that game was." - Bruce Feldman, CBSSports.com
10/01/2013 - It's been a great start this season for Washington. A big key has been an improved O-line as QB Keith Price has been playing better than ever. Price told me a few weeks before the season that his problems last season were due to him not trusting trusting his teammates and how they had to build that trust this off-season. It must be back now. He's completing over 72 percent of his passes, up from 61 percent last year. Better still, Price has only been sacked three times this season in four games, well below the 37 times he was sacked in 2012. - Bruce Feldman, CBSSports.com
09/21/2013 - Keith Price threw for 213 yards and three touchdowns in less than a half, Deontae Cooper scored his first career touchdown after three major knee surgeries, and No. 17 Washington routed Idaho State 56-0 on Saturday in the Huskies' final tuneup before the start of Pac-12 Conference play. Bishop Sankey, the national leader in yards rushing per game, barely broke a sweat against the Bengals (2-1) of the FCS. Sankey saw action on the Huskies' (3-0) first three series and scored on a 3-yard TD run in the first quarter. Sankey finished with 77 yards on four carries.
Price played a little more than 1 1/2 quarters, throwing TD passes of 1, 6 and 5 yards and adding a 1-yard TD run as the Huskies led 42-0 at halftime. It was the second straight season the Huskies overwhelmed a lower division opponent in the first half. Last year, Washington led Portland State 45-0 at halftime. - AP Sports
09/15/2013 - Keith Price wasn't quite ready to celebrate, nor were his teammates. Even though No. 19 Washington came away with a rare road win to remain unbeaten, this was hardly a perfect game. Price threw for 342 yards and two touchdowns, Bishop Sankey ran for a career-high 208 yards and the Huskies held off Illinois 34-24 at Soldier Field on Saturday. Josh Shirley added three sacks, and the Huskies came out on top after dropping seven of nine away from home. They hadn't won on the road outside the Pac-12 since beating Syracuse in 2007, but as good as all that sounds, they were hardly content. "We had a chance to finish them off," Price said. "We didn't do it. We let them crawl back in the game late."
Washington (2-0) collected 615 yards in this one after racking up 592 and keeping high-powered Boise State without a touchdown in a 38-6 rout two weeks ago. But the Huskies had to hang on down the stretch. They saw a 21-point lead in the third quarter dwindle to seven in the fourth, before sending Illinois (2-1) to its sixth straight loss against ranked opponents. - AP Sports
09/12/2013 - Scouting the Washington passing game: Price worked a lot of bubble screens and short passes in the opener. After starting the game with an interception, he was 23-for-30, including three passes he threw away on purpose, from then on. QUOTE TO NOTE: "He played pretty good, there wasn't anything to critique." -- QB Keith Price, laughing, on whether he texted Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson any pointers after the Seahawks beat Carolina 12-7 Sunday. Wilson and Price are friends, and Wilson texted him three things to work on after the Huskies' opener. - The Sports Xchange
09/01/2013 - Keith Price threw a pair of third-quarter touchdown passes to become the school's all-time leader, and Washington returned renovated Husky Stadium with a stunning 38-6 blowout of No. 19 Boise State on Saturday, the worst loss in Chris Petersen's tenure as the Broncos head coach. Price was intercepted on his first pass in the Huskies newly renovated home on the shores of Lake Washington. And he was nearly perfect from there, the first step in putting a disappointing 2012 season in the past.
Price completed 23 of 31 passes for 324 yards. He found Kasen Williams on a 19-yard TD on Washington's first possession of the second half and his 18-yard strike to Josh Perkins gave Washington a 24-6 lead late in the third quarter. It was Price's 56th career touchdown, passing Cody Pickett as Washington's all-time leader. - AP Sports
09/01/2013 - Washington showed off the Huskies' new digs in grand fashion. It's rare to see anyone blow out Boise State like U-Dub did Saturday night. With a sterling effort, Keith Price shut up skeptics who expected he might lose his starting job to talented youngster Cyler Miles. Price looked like he was playing with a ton of confidence against the Broncos. He looked a lot like he did in 2011, when he was one of the better young QBs in the country. In 2012, he was shaky and something of a mess. This summer, he told me that a lot of that had to do with not trusting his teammates. (The O-line had to be rebuilt.)
But Price added that he and his teammates had developed that bond now and he expected to be better than ever. So far, so good. He carved up BSU, going 23 of 31 for 324 yards and two TDs even without star TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins who was sidelined for a suspension for an off-season DUI. The Huskies also ran off 85 plays, the most they have in six seasons. "Keith did great tonight," coach Steve Sarkisian said. "I thought he was for sure efficient and he threw the ball well down the field, which is something we wanted to do. He played like a point guard tonight, and in this system I thought he was shooting the ball really well." - Bruce Feldman, CBSSports.com
09/01/2013 - For the second year in a row, Boise State opened a season by playing their way back into an underdog role. The 19th-ranked Broncos dropped their second consecutive season opener, losing 38-6 to Washington on a day when the Huskies had all the momentum. Playing in front of 71,963 fans on a day when renovated Husky Stadium was being re-opened, unranked Washington (1-0) piled up 592 yards of offense -- 344 of which came on its five touchdown drives. It marked the eighth highest total ever put up on a Boise State team and the most since Nevada had 639 yards against the Broncos in a 2007 game.
Washington quarterback Keith Price completed 23 of 31 passes for 324 yards and two touchdowns, and running back Bishop Sankey had 161 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries. They both sat out the final 5:56 after a Dwayne Washington touchdown run capped 28 consecutive points that gave the Huskies a 38-6 lead. Price's second touchdown pass, a 19-yarder to backup tight end Joshua Perkins with 1:34 remaining in the third quarter, broke open the game while giving Washington a 24-6 lead. That also gave Price a school-record 56 career touchdown passes, breaking the previous mark held by Cody Pickett. - The Sports Xchange
08/28/2013 - MOST IMPORTANT PLAYER: QB Keith Price had a down 2012 after a spectacular 2011, his first year as the starting quarterback. Last season was such a struggle that some in the Seattle media called for Price to be benched. He doesn't need to hit the elite bar of 2011 -- 161.9 QB rating -- but needs to be better than last year. If he can average out the two seasons, he'll have this line: 63.4 percent completion percentage, 2,895 yards, 27 touchdowns, 12 interceptions and a 142.1 efficiency rating. That would be good news for Washington. - The Sports Xchange
08/14/2013 - 2013 JOHNNY UNITAS GOLDEN ARM AWARD WATCHLIST: Keith Price, Washington,...Passed for 2,726 yards in 2012, sixth-most in UW history ... 263 completions and 432 attempts both ranked No. 3 in UW single-season history ... 19 touchdown passes were seventh-most in Husky history while 54 career TD passes is tied for second, just one shy of the school record ... .609 completion percentage in 2012 was fourth best in UW history. - Washington football
08/13/2013 - PLAYERS TO WATCH IN 2013: QB Keith Price - A fifth-year senior to be in 2013, Price has had a rollercoaster UW career. He was the toast of the town in 2011 as a sophomore when he threw a school-record 33 touchdown passes. But he was heavily criticized in 2012, when all of his numbers fell as he adjusted to a new set of skill players and a revamped offensive line. With almost everyone back this season, Price should have better chemistry with his supporting cast. - The Sports Xchange
08/13/2013 - OTHER WASHINGTON PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: QB Keith Price (6-1, 202, 4.73): Price stunned onlookers in 2011 when he replaced Jake Locker and in many ways proved to be an improvement over the Tennessee Titans' first-round pick. Heady, mobile and possessing legitimate arm talent, Price completed 66.9 percent of his passes for 3,063 yards and a school-record 33 touchdowns (against only 11 interceptions) in his first season as the full-time starter. He stood toe to toe with Baylor's Robert Griffin III by scoring an NCAA-record seven touchdowns in a 67-56 Alamo Bowl loss, leading to huge expectations a season ago. Struggles in protection, however, led to Price's numbers (and confidence) dwindling in 2012 (60.9 percent completion rate for 2,726 yards and a 19-13 TD to INT ratio). Given the success of Griffin, Seattle Seahawks' star Russell Wilson and other dual-threat passers in the NFL recently, Price could earn draftable grades from teams despite his slight frame. To do so, however, the senior will need to revert back to the caliber of play he showed in 2011. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
