Incoming Washington Huskies recruit Troy Williams was named the L.A. Times quarterback of the year, the newspaper announced Tuesday.
Williams passed for 2,886 yards and 39 touchdowns as he led the Harbor City Narbonne Gauchos to a 14-1 record the state championship regional bowl game. The Gauchos lost the bowl game 41-34 but Williams made an impact on the big high school stage, throwing for 367 yards and a touchdown and rushing for 105 yards.
Coach Manuel Douglas told the Times that Williams is the best quarterback to ever play on his team.
The Huskies have one more year to enjoy current quarterback Keith Price, who didn't build very well off of his breakout 2011 sophomore year. Price threw 3,063 yards and 33 touchdowns in 2011, but only threw 2,486 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2012.
Williams will be the fifth scholarship quarterback for the Huskies in 2013, alongside Derrick Brown, Cyler Miles and Jeff Lindquist.
