Schmidt wins GW award

By

The punter on a college football team rarely gets much recognition. But once in a while, one plays so well he can\’t be ignored.

\n

UC Davis fans and coaches know they have something special in sophomore Colton Schmidt and, for the second time this season, the Great West Conference has taken notice.

\n

Schmidt averaged 46.6 yards on seven punts Saturday to help the Aggies defeat North Dakota, 35-16, and was named the Great West Conference Special Teams Player of the Week a day later. It marks the second time he has received the award in 2010 and the third time in his career.

\n

Schmidt, from Liberty High School in Bakersfield, put three of his kicks inside the 20-yard line, including a huge 78-yard boot in the fourth quarter that sailed 58 of those yards in the air. It was the program\’s longest punt, and also the longest in the Great West this season.

\n

The Aggie standout also had punts of 54, 48, 42 and 44 yards among his total.

\n

Cal Poly running back Mark Rodgers, who gained 235 yards and scored two touchdowns against South Dakota on Saturday, received the Great West\’s weekly offensive award, while Mustang lineman Gavin Cooper, who had two sacks among his seven tackles, earned defensive accolades.

\n

UCD and Cal Poly will meet up this weekend in San Luis Obispo as they renew The Battle for the Golden Horseshoe on Saturday at 6:05 p.m. Last year, the Aggies defeated the Mustangs, 23-10, at Aggie Stadium.

\n

“Our guys are excited about playing Cal Poly this week and I think they will play well,” UCD head coach Biggs said on Monday\’s Great West teleconference. “We\’ve had a long tradition, a long history of playing Cal Poly, they\’re always great games. The environment is as good as it gets at the (Football Championship Subdivision) level.”
