The Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. product blocked a potential game-tying 48-yard field goal attempt that gave USC the momentum that carried them to a 38-28 victory over the Utah Utes. He blocked a second attempt just before halftime following a 56-yard drive. In addition to the stellar play on special teams, he made an outstanding 23-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter from quarterback Matt Barkley.
Marquise Lee was given the same honor following the Trojans' season-opening win vs. Hawaii. Barkley and Nickell Robey were also nominated for player of the week honors following the win at Utah. Stanford quarterback Josh Nunes was awarded offensive player of the week honors, while defensive back Kameron Jackson of California earned defensive honors for the week.
USC will next take on the University of Washington Huskies on the road.
