Biography

 
PRO: The Titans invested their 2011 first-round draft selection on University of Washington quarterback Jake Locker.  The signal caller’s arm strength, athleticism, toughness and competitiveness were qualities that convinced the team of his ability to lead a young and talented offense.  As a rookie, he appeared in five games as a reserve and passed for four touchdowns without throwing an interception.  Then, in his second campaign, he took the starting reins for the first time.  Appearing in 11 games, he passed for 2,176 yards and 10 touchdowns and added 291 yards and a touchdown on the ground.  An injury to his left (non-throwing) shoulder kept him out of five games, and he underwent surgery and rehabilitation to correct the issue early in the 2013 offseason.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•    As a first-time starter in 2012, Locker completed 177 of 314 passes for 2,176 yards, 10 touchdowns and 11 interceptions (74.0 passer rating) in 11 games.  He also rushed for 291 yards and a score on 41 attempts.
•    In 2011, Locker appeared in five games as a reserve and completed 34 of 66 passes for 542 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions.  Rushed the ball eight times for 56 yards and a touchdown.  
•    Locker’s 282 passing yards against New Orleans (12/11/11) rank second in franchise history by a rookie quarterback and the most since the Oilers’ inaugural 1960 season (Jacky Lee - 331 yards at Boston Patriots, 11/25/60).
•    As a senior at Washington in 2010, completed 184 of 332 passes for 2,265 yards with 17 touchdowns.  Avenged a 0-12 season in 2008, by leading the Huskies to a bowl game for the first time since 2002.
•     Connected on a career-best 230 of 395 passes for 2,800 yards with 21 touchdowns in 2009 as a junior at Washington.  Earned All-Pac-10 honorable mention and was a semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien Quarterback Award.

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•    Locker built a chicken coop in his backyard.  He has 15 chickens who produce approximately 70 eggs per week that he shares with family and friends.
•    Locker hosted a youth football camp in 2012 and 2013 at Battle Ground Academy in Nashville.
•    Locker was very involved with charitable endeavors while at Washington and volunteered a lot of his time at local children’s hospitals.  He started a foundation with teammates called “Touchdowns for Kids” that benefitted youth hospitals.
•    Locker was an outstanding baseball player in high school.  He was originally selected in the 40th round by the Los Angeles Angels as a senior in 2006 coming out of Ferndale High School and the organization again tabbed him in the 10th round of the 2009 draft to play centerfield in their minor league system. Locker actually returned to Washington as a walk-on for his senior campaign, as the Angels paid his scholarship costs during the fall 2010 semester.  
•     Locker played outfield for the Bellingham Bells of the West Coast Collegiate Baseball League in 2008, where he was named by Baseball America as the league’s top prospect. After suffering an offseason injury, he played in just 10 games, hitting .273 with one home run before returning to Washington for 2008 football fall camp.  An anonymous baseball scout quoted in Baseball America said Locker “could be a potential Hall of Famer.”
•     In 2010, Locker’s hometown of Ferndale declared the day of its annual Old Settlers Picnic to be “Jake Locker Day.”
•     Of all the impressive tailgate parties that take place before and after University of Washington football games, one of the most formidable the last few years was held by the “Ferndawgs,” a passionate group of family and friends from Ferndale who cheered at every home game Locker played.  While the Ferndawgs drape themselves in Washington purple and gold, very few of them attended the university.
