Muscle Milk California Student-Athlete of the Week

November 23, 2009


BERKELEY - Shane Vereen rushed 42 times for 193 yards (both career highs) and three touchdowns (tied career-high) to lead the Golden Bears to a 34-28 win in a thrilling Big Game at Stanford, making the sophomore tailback the Muscle Milk California Student-Athlete of the Week for the second consecutive week.

The win was Cal's fifth in their last six games overall, and their seventh victory in their last eight games against the Cardinal. The 42 rushing attempts tied for the most in the nation in 2009 along with Central Florida's Brynn Harvey, who had 42 carries against Memphis on Oct. 3. Vereen's performance earned him the Walter Camp Football Foundation's BCS National Offensive Player of the Week honor. He is also one of four nominees for the Week 12 AT&T All-America Player of the Week Award and was an honorable mention selection for the College Football Performance Awards Running Back Performer of the Week. The national honors are all the first of Vereen's career.
