Mario Danelo Named Pac-10 Special Teams Player Of The Week
Oct. 9, 2006
USC junior placekicker Mario Danelo was named the Pac-10 Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance against Washington.
Danelo hit all 4 field goals (34, 25, 32 and 21 yards), a career best, and both PATs he attempted versus the Huskies, including 3 field goals in the second half as his final 2 proved to be the game's decisive points in USC's 26-20 victory.
On the year, Danelo is 9-of-10 on field goals and 17-of-18 on PATs. He currently is fourth nationally in field goals (1.8, second in Pac-10) and 18th in scoring (8.8, fourth in Pac-10). Last year, he set NCAA season records for PATs (83) and PAT attempts (86). He had a string of 15 consecutive successful field goal tries after missing his first career attempt in 2005 until missing at Arizona in 2006. In his career, he is 20-of-22 on field goals and 100-of-104 on PATs.
Also selected this week were California running back Justin Forsett (offense) and Washington State linebacker Scott Davis (defense).
