Arizona State kicker Zane Gonzalez was named the Pac-12 Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance in the team’s 53-24 win over Washington Saturday.
Gonzalez was perfect, going four-for-four on field goal attempts, and added five extra points to total 17 points for the game. The freshman has made 11 straight field goals, bringing him up to 15-of-18 on the year, and ranks fifth nationally at 11.4 points per game.
Gonzalez also leads the Pac-12 and is second in the country with 2.1 field goals per game. He’s the second Sun Devil to be named a Pac-12 Player of the Week this year, the previous being safety Alden Darby’s honor following their game against USC.
Also recognized this week were Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey and Stanford safety Jordan Richards. Carey had a school-record 40 carries, racking up 236 rushing yards and the game-winning touchdown as the Wildcats topped the Utah Utes in Tucson, Ariz. Richards had two interceptions and a team-high 10 tackles during Stanford’s home victory over UCLA.
