Football’s Gonzalez Earns Pac-12 Player Of The Week Honors
TEMPE, Ariz. – Arizona State University sophomore kicker Zane Gonzalez has been named Pac-12 Special Teams Player of the Week after his 36-yard field goal in overtime gave the Sun Devils a 19-16 win over No. 17 Utah on Nov. 1, the conference announced Monday.
This is the second weekly Pac-12 honor for the Sun Devils this season, and their 95th since 1983, and marks Gonzalez’s third career selection after he earned the recognition on Oct. 21 and Dec. 2 in 2013.
Gonzalez, who is from Deer Park, Texas, kicked the game-winning 36-yard field goal in overtime to secure the Devils’ fourth straight victory. He made four-of-five field goal attempts in the game, including a 30-yard field goal that tied the game at 16 with less than six minutes remaining in regulation.
His 13 points in the game pushed his season scoring average to 9.9, which ranks second in the Pac-12 and 14th in the nation.
Gonzalez was also one of three placekickers selected as a Lou Groza Award Star of the Week, his second nod this season, and was named a College Football Performance Award Honorable Mention.
