Marcedes Lewis Named UCLA/MET-Rx Student-Athlete of the Week

Oct. 11, 2004

Lewis had a breakout game in the win over Arizona, making six receptions for 99 yards and three touchdowns, tying his career high for receptions and setting news bests for yardage and touchdowns. His touchdowns measured 16, 12 and 18 yards, and he also had catches of 23 and 21 yards on scoring drives. All six catches produced first downs.

On the first touchdown (16 yards on third down), he tipped it, was hit, but stayed focused to re-grab the ball for the score. On his second touchdown (12 yards), he made the catch, bounced off a would-be tackler, regained his balance and forced his way into the end zone for a 23-3 lead. His third scoring catch was on an 18-yard strike from Olson down the middle, again on third down. He also made a reception with a defender draped all over him and another on which he leaped high in the air for the catch.

On the year, he leads the Bruins with 15 receptions and four receiving touchdowns and is second in yards (214). He is averaging 14.2 yards per reception. He has produced 12 first downs to go with his four touchdowns.

This is Lewis' UCLA/MET-Rx Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and of his career. Also nominated: Kendal Billingsley, W. Soccer; Heather Cullen, W. Volleyball; Brett Ormsby, M. Water Polo; Carmen Winant, W. Cross Country.
