Emmett White Named Utah State Athlete Of The Week
Oct. 9, 2000
Utah State football player Emmett White was voted USU's athlete of the week by the local media panel, it was announced today.
White, a junior from Ogden, had 277 all-purpose yards in a 38-14 loss at Brigham Young last Friday night. The 5-foot-11, 199-pound back had 61 yards on 19 carries, as well as one touchdown. White was also the recipient of six passes for 40 yards. If all that wasn't enough, White returned three punt for 52 yards (long of 30) and four kickoff returns for 124 yards (long of 54).
Because of his outstanding play so far this season, White ranks in the top 10 in seven Big West statistical categories. No. 32 is also among the top 50 in four NCAA categories, including fifth in all-purpose yards and 48th in rushing.
White and the Aggie football team will open conference play this weekend at North Texas, in Denton, Texas, at 1:35 p.m. MST.
