Placekicker Ryan Killeen Named Pac-10 Special Teams Player Of The Week
Oct. 6, 2003
USC junior placekicker Ryan Killeen was named the Pac-10 Special Teams Player of the Week based on his performance at Arizona State.
Killeen bounced back from his missed field goal in the third overtime at California the previous week by hitting all 3 of his field goals (45, 28 and 38 yards) and all 4 of his PATs at Arizona State, as well as having 5 touchbacks on 8 kickoffs.
He currently is tied for 19th nationally in field goals (1.6, second in the Pac-10) and tied for 15th in scoring (9.4, third in the Pac-10).
Other Pac-10 honorees this week were Oregon State tailback Steven Jackson (offense) and UCLA defensive end Dave Ball (defense).
Killeen is the third Trojan to win Pac-10 Player of the Week honors in 2003, joining defensive tackle Mike Patterson (selected for his efforts at Auburn) and punter Tom Malone (chosen for this performance against BYU).
