Sept. 13, 2004
Corvallis, Ore. - Split end Mike Hass of Oregon State, linebacker Dale Robinson of Arizona State and kick returner T.J. Rushing of Stanford have been named Pac-10 Football Players of the Week.
Hass, a junior from Portland, Ore., performed in a losing cause in Oregon State's 53-34 loss at Boise State, but eclipsed a Pac-10 record that had stood for 28 years. Hass established a new Pac-10 record for receiving yards in a game when he pulled in 12 passes for 293 yards (24.4). Included were three touchdown receptions of 49, 9 and 45 yards. Hass surpassed the previous record of 289 yards, by Wesley Walker of California against San Jose State, which had stood since 1976.
Robinson, a junior from Queens, N.Y., led the defensive effort in Arizona State's 30-21 win at Northwestern. Robinson had a game-high 13 tackles, eight solo, including three tackles for loss (-12), one of which was a quarterback sack (-10).
Rushing, a junior from Pauls Valley, Okla., gave Stanford a jump-start in the Cardinal's 37-10 win against BYU. With Stanford trailing 10-0, Rushing returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown and the Cardinal went on to a 37-10 win. The 99-yard return was the third-longest in Stanford history.
