Rewind: Live chat with former WSU quarterback Ryan Leaf
When Ryan Leaf finished his career at Washington State University, he had become one of the school's all-time QB greats.
As a junior in 1997, he passed for a then Pac-10 conference record of 33 touchdowns. He also helped the Cougars win their first Pac-10 conference championship in school history, which ended WSU's 67-year Rose Bowl drought.
After the season, Leaf finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting and was named the Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Year.
He was later selected No. 2 overall in the 1998 NFL Draft and played three seasons of professional football.
Leaf talked about his playing days at WSU, his new book 596 Switch, which talks about his troubled past, and much more in a live chat Oct. 19 on seattletimes.com.
