Eric Kendricks Named UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week
By: UCLA Athletics
Senior linebacker Eric Kendricks of the UCLA football team was named the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for Aug 25-31.

Kendricks totaled a game-high 16 tackles, one shy of his career high in UCLA's 28-20 win at Virginia last Saturday. He added a forced fumble which led to a 75-yard scoring return for a touchdown by Randall Goforth and, on Virginia's next possession, an interception which he returned 37-yards for a touchdown and resulted in the Bruins taking a 21-3 lead.

The turnovers were part of a three turnover-returns second quarter which produced a trio of defensive touchdowns for the first time by UCLA since a 1986 game at Oregon State. UCLA is the first school to record three defensive touchdowns in a quarter of a game since 2009. Kendricks, who was very active in the first half, recorded seven of his tackles in that second quarter. In the second half, two of his stops came on Virginia third down plays.

Earlier this week, Kendricks was honored as the National Defensive Player of the Week by FWAA/Bronko Nagurski, Walter Camp and Athlon Sports. He was also named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week on Monday.

Watch highlights from the UCLA-Virginia game, including Kendricks' forced fumble and interception return for a touchdown.

This is Kendricks' first UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and second of his career.

Also nominated: Seyi Adekoya, M. Soccer; Nick Hartle, M. Cross Country; Alison Lee, W. Golf; Karsta Lowe, W. Volleyball; Katelyn Rowland, W. Soccer; Sabrina Seay, W. Cross Country.
