Nov. 24, 2008

PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University sophomore kicker Nico Grasu has been named the Pacific-10 Conference Special Teams Player of the Week following his performance against Washington, it was announced by Commissioner Tom Hansen Monday.

Grasu kicked three field goals, including the game-winner in the second overtime, to clinch the Cougars' come-from-behind, 16-13 victory over the Huskies. Grasu's first field goal, a 28-yard attempt, came as time expired in regulation, sending it into overtime. Grasu then hit a 19-yarder in the first overtime before clinching the victory with a 37-yard field goal, capping a perfect 3-for-3 afternoon.

Grasu is the second Cougar to earn POW honors this season as Marshall Lobbestael was the Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Week following the Portland State contest.
