Sanchez Named Pac-10 Player of the Week

Great things happen when you have time in the pocket.

From ESPN.

USC quarterback Mark Sanchez, California defensive end Cameron Jordan and Cal punter Bryan Anger were named Pac-10 Players of the Week on Monday.

Sanchez, a senior from Mission Viejo, Calif., was 19-of-28 (.679) for 332 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions in the Trojans 44-10 win over No. 23 Oregon. His scoring passes covered 34, 63 and 11 yards. USC rolled up 598 yards total offense, including 443 yards passing and were forced to punt only one time.

This is the third time this year Sanchez has earned player of the week honors.

Here is a some more from the OCR.

Sanchez became just the sixth USC player to be honored three times in the same season since 1984, which is as far as those records go back.

Here are the others:

  • 2005: TB Reggie Bush
  • 2002: QB Carson Palmer
  • 1998: CB Antuan Simmons
  • 1992: WR Curtis Conway
  • 1988: QB Rodney Peete

Sanchez is the only one to be honored three times in the first six weeks of the season. No USC player has won four Player of the Week awards in the same year.

Congrats Mark...Strong Work!!

Small question though whats up with snub to Kevin Ellison....
