University of Hawaii recipient JoJo Ward was named Attacking Player of the Week for the Mountain West Conference today.
Ward, a senior from Waco, Texas, made 10 passes for 189 yards and four touchdowns in the Rainbow Warriors’ 31:28 win over Oregon State last Saturday.
It was the Warriors’ second win in as many games against a Pac-12 opponent. The last time the Warriors beat two Pac-12 teams in the same season was in 1994 when they beat Oregon and California.
The Warriors started the season for the third time in a row 2-0, which corresponds to a series that had previously been achieved in the 1981-1983 seasons.
The Warriors have won both of the Mountain West Weekly Awards this season. Right-hand slotback Cedric Byrd was honored last week after scoring 14 passes and four touchdowns in the season opener against Arizona.
After two home games, the Warriors travel to Seattle to play Washington on Saturday. Washington is also a member of the Pac-12.
