Demetric Felton Selected UCLA Student-Athlete of Week

Nov 24, 2020

Redshirt senior running back Demetric Felton of the UCLA football team has been selected the UCLA Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Ready, for Nov. 16-22.

Felton had a career game in the Bruins' narrow loss at No. 11 Oregon Saturday. The Temecula, Calif. native recorded 34 carries for 167 yards and two touchdowns – all career highs – and returned a career-best five kickoffs for 105 yards. The dual threat out of the backfield also registered a reception for the 15th game in a row. Felton's 278 all-purpose yards in the contest represent the highest total in the Pac-12, and fifth-best nationally, this season. He has now posted back-to-back 100-yard rushing games and his 331 yards on the ground match his 12-game 2019 mark.

This is Felton's first UCLA student-athlete of the week award of the season and of his career.
