Still beaming after a season-opening rout of Boise State, Washington QB Keith Price said Monday that he received some constructive criticism from a fellow local QB who also happens to be one of the NFL's top young stars.
Price told reporters he is being mentored by Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, who reached out to the Huskies' senior signal-caller shortly after he arrived in Seattle as a rookie third-round pick before last season.
They apparently hit it off.
"We're good friends, man," Price said in a video posted by the Seattle Times. "Russell is a great guy, a great mentor. He texted me after the (Boise State) game. He sent me this long text of things that I need to do better. So he's awesome, man. He told me not to get too high on (the win). I played a good game, but I still had three things he told me that I could get better at."
What were those things Wilson told him to work on?
"Keep my eyes down the field, don't takes sacks and slide," Price said.
Price completed 23 of 31 passes for 324 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Washington's 38-6 win over Boise State. He was sacked once and rushed six times for 32 yards.
This season is about bouncing back for Price, and he's off to a decent start.
