More things to hang on the fridge door

After an outstanding performance this weekend at the Rose Bowl some of our boys in Red and Blue have been recognized by the PAC-10 as the outstanding players of the week in their respective areas of play.

First off Corey Hall, Jr. DB from DeSoto, TX has received the PAC-10 Defensive Player of the Week award for his outstanding performance against UCLA this past weekend. Hall posted "six tackles, four solo, including one quarterback sack and broke up two passes, leading Arizona's defensive effort. The Wildcat defense did not allow a touchdown and limited UCLA to 11 first downs and 196 yards of total offense (115 rushing, 81 passing)."

On the Special Teams side of things Money Mike Thomas receives the Special Teams Player of the Week award. "Thomas, a senior also from DeSoto, Texas, had 257 all-purpose yards against UCLA, including 107 yards on six punt returns (17.8), with three of the returns setting up Arizona touchdowns. Hall and Thomas were teammates at DeSoto (Texas) High School."

It should be noted that Rob Gronkowski was a runner up for the Offensive Player of the Week award after his two touchdown performance.
