Locker in final Bells games this weekend

UW quarterback Jake Locker will play his final three games as a member of the Bellingham Bells this weekend in Bellingham.

After Sunday, Locker will return his full attentions to the coming UW football season. Fall practice begins Aug. 4.

Here's the Bells' release of this weekend's festivities:

The Bellingham Bells will host the Corvallis Knights starting Friday in a weekend full of great promotions, but it will also be Bellingham's last chance to see Jake Locker play for the Bells in 2008.

Due to the upcoming preparation for his University of Washington football duties, Locker will play for the Bells this weekend, beginning Friday, July 11 and ending Sunday, July 13.

"Jake is going to take a couple of weeks to rest and recharge his batteries before he starts camp with the Huskies," commented head coach Brandon Newell. "He has been a tremendous addition to this team, and a great teammate as well. He is always welcome on any team I coach."

Locker's play on the field has been as impressive as the fanfare following signing with the Bells. After two years away from competitive baseball, Locker has been impressive at the plate, on the basepaths, and in the outfield.

The Bells also have a great promotional lineup for fans this weekend: Friday, July 11 Praise 106.5 Family Feast Night Fans will enjoy $1.00 hot dogs, soda, ice cream and coffee.
