Hedrick, Goodale Pick Up MW Honors
Nov. 10, 2014

BOISE, Idaho - For the first time in nearly two years Boise State has claimed multiple Mountain West Player of the Week honors in the same week as quarterback Grant Hedrick and kicker Dan Goodale brought home the offensive and special-teams awards, respectively, on Monday.

Both honors were the first for both Hedrick and Goodale. The last time two Bronco student-athletes had been recognized in the same week was Dec. 3, 2012, when D.J. Harper claimed the offensive honor and J.C. Percy earned the defensive award.

Goodale goes down as Boise State's first Mountain West Special Teams Player of the Week since the Broncos joined the conference ahead of the 2011 season. The last time a Bronco claimed a weekly conference special-teams honor was Nov. 22, 2010 when kicker Kyle Brotzman was named WAC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Goodale went 2-for-2 on his field-goal attempts and had seven of his 11 kickoffs go for touchbacks in Boise State's 60-49 victory at New Mexico Saturday.

Hedrick enjoyed one of the finest days for an offensive player in Boise State history, racking up 498 total yards, the fourth-highest single-game total in school history, and six touchdowns. The Independence, Ore. native threw for 367 yards and four scores in addition to running for 131 yards and two more touchdowns in the win. In the process he became the first Boise State quarterback in the school's FBS era to throw for 300 yards and rush for 100 in the same contest, with his century mark on the ground also being just the third such performance by a Bronco quarterback over the last 15 seasons.

Boise State has now earned six Mountain West weekly honors in 2014. Previously, Jay Ajayi twice earned the offensive honor (Sept. 8, Sept. 22) and defensive honors have been claimed by Donte Deayon (Oct. 20) and Kamalei Correa (Oct. 27).

Boise State (7-2, 4-1 MW) hosts San Diego State (5-4, 3-2 MW) this Saturday (Nov. 15) at 8:15 p.m. at Albertsons Stadium. The contest will be broadcast on ESPNU.
