Cal junior Trevor Davis has been voted Pac-12 special teams player of the week after his record-setting kickoff return performance at Washington State.
Davis, a transfer from Hawaii who prepped at Alhambra HS in Martinez, returned kickoffs 100 and 98 yards in the third quarter of the Bears; 60-59 win. He became the first Cal player to return two kickoffs for TDs in the same game and, in fact, tied the school record set by Deltha O’Neal for most career TDs on kickoffs.
Davis also caught a pair of touchdown passes, including a 51-yarder to give Cal the lead for good with 3:18 left.
WSU quarterback Connor Halliday, who set an FBS record with 734 passing yards, beat out Cal’s Jared Goff for offensive player of the week honors. Goff set a Cal record with 527 passing yards and also threw five touchdowns.
Davis also was named the CBSSports.com Specialist of the Week, Pac-12 Special Teams Player of the Week and California Muscle-Milk Student-Athlete of the Week. He is also a nominee for the VEGAS SEVEN Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl Pac-12 Player of the Week to be determined by fan voting and announced Wednesday.
Goff was a co-recipient of the College Football Performance Awards National Performer of the Week award and also shared the CFPA’s Quarterback Performer of the Week, both for the second consecutive week.
