Football's Surrell and Men's Golf's Webber Named CU Co-Athletes of the Week

Nov 12, 2003

BOULDER- Football's sophomore safety Clyde Surrell and Men's Golf senior Kane Webber earned Co-Athlete of the Week honors after their performances this week.

            A few weeks ago Surrell had the best day of any Buffalo defender after his six tackles (five solo), two fumble recoveries and a third down stop against No. 1 ranked Oklahoma but it was his efforts against Missouri here on Saturday that earned him this weeks honors.


Playing in 62 snaps from scrimmage, he recorded eight tackles (seven solo), a tackle for a loss and two third down stops.  After a personal-foul penalty against Colorado, Missouri marched to the Buff's 20 and Surrell forced a fumble and recovery when he ripped the ball away from quarterback Brad Smith, ending a Tiger scoring threat.


Senior golfer Kane Webber recorded his best round of the fall, scoring a 4-under par 68 to finish with a 212 total that tied him for sixth individually in The Prestige at PGA West last Tuesday.  It was his best finish and his fourth top 20 effort in as many meets for the fall, helping the Buffs to a fifth place finish.  As the golf team shuts things down until January, head coach Mark Simpson believes that Kane is well on his way to a successful season.  "I expect him to be one of the top 10 players in the country by the time things are done."


Others nominated for this week's award were Matt McCue (men's cross country), Katie Kissane (women's cross country), Maria Persson Gulda (women's golf) and Nicole Carr (volleyball).
