Just Another Quizz Player of the Week Honor
Oct. 12, 2009
Corvallis, Ore. -
Oregon State sophomore running back Jacquizz Rodgers has been named this week’s Pac-10 Conference Offensive Player of the Week, league commissioner Larry Scott announced Monday. He has also been selected the Rivals.com National Player of the Week and the College Football Performance Awards Running Back of the Week.
Rodgers, from Richmond, Texas, accounted for 271 all-purpose yards, tied for the third-highest total in school history, as the Beavers defeated Pac-10 Conference leading Stanford 38-28 last Saturday at Reser Stadium. “Quizz” rushed for a career-high 189 yards and matched the school record with four touchdowns rushing.
The conference honor is the fourth for Jacquizz in his career and the first this season. His brother, junior receiver/punt returner James Rodgers, was honored last week as the league’s Offensive Player of the Week after accumulating 209 all-purpose yards in leading the Beavers to a 28-17 victory at Arizona State Oct. 3.
Jacquizz ranks second in the Pac-10 and ninth in the nation for rushing at 116.2 yards per game. He also ranks second in the nation for touchdowns scored with 13. Overall, Quizz has rushed for 100-plus yards 10 times in his career and is eighth at OSU for career rushing with 1,950 yards.
Oregon State is 4-2 overall and 2-1 in the Pac-10. The Beavers have the week off before resuming action Oct. 24 at USC in a game being televised live by ABC beginning at 5 p.m.
