Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh has named former Clover Park star Tavita Pritchard his starting quarterback for Saturday's game against TCU, even though previous starter and fifth-year senior T.C. Ostrander is healthy enough to practice and play.
Meanwhile, we also spoke today to UW senior receiver Anthony Russo about Pritchard. The two crossed paths in high school when Russo's Lakes got the better of things.
"We never lost to Clover Park," Russo said. "They almost had us one year: It was 6-6 at halftime, but it was 36-6 at the end. That's as close as they got to us."
However, Russo admits some envy over the recent college results.
Never miss a local story.
"I'm glad he got that win for them (over USC)," Russo said. "But I wish it would have been us."
