LOGAN, Utah - Utah State place kicker Brad Bohn was named the Big West Conference Special Teams Player of the Week for his efforts in USU's 44-20 loss against Arizona State on Saturday it was announced by the league office on Monday.
Bohn, a senior from Laguna Beach, Calif., earned the award for the sixth time in his Aggie career, becoming the second-most decorated player in USU's Big West history. Former Aggie Demario Brown earned conference offensive player of the week honors a league record eight times during his career which concluded last season.
Three league players earned the award seven times in their careers, including Mark Barsotti, a former Fresno State quarterback, John Dutton, a former Nevada quarterback and Willard Harrell, a former Pacific running back.
Bohn was successful on both of his field goal attempts and extra point attempts against the Sun Devils. He also was successful on an on-side kick that USU recovered late in the second quarter of the game.
Bohn is off to a solid start this season, making four of five field goal attempts. In fact he has made seven of his last nine field goal attempts dating back to last year. Bohn enters Saturday's Utah game ranked 23rd in the nation in field goals made. He ranks first in the league in that category as well as third in scoring.
Other league winners included offensive honoree Idaho running back Willie Alderson, who rushed for 113 yards and one touchdown on 26 carries and caught five passes for 38 yards in the Vandals' 38-34 win against Washington State.
The defensive winner was Boise State linebacker Kareem Williams, who recorded 10 tackles as the Broncos defeated Central Michigan 47-10.
USU's offensive nominee was Emmett White, who rushed 22 times for 113 yards and one score and caught two passes for 85 yards and another score. He became the first Aggie to score a rushing and receiving touchdown in the same game since Demario Brown accomplished the feat against Brigham Young in 1997.
Linebacker Brent Passey was USU's defensive nominee after recording 14 tackles, including two sacks. That marked the 14th time in the last 18 games that Passey recorded at least 10 tackles in a game.
