Oct. 10, 2005

Junior running back Maurice Drew (Antioch, CA/De La Salle HS) of the UCLA Football Team was selected as the UCLA/MET-Rx Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of Oct. 3-9.

Drew was named the Walter Camp Football Foundation National 1-A Offensive Player of the Week and the Sporting News National Player of the Week after scoring five touchdowns in UCLA's 47-40 win over No. 9/10 California. Drew returned a punt 81 yards for a touchdown to tie the Pac-10 record for most punt returns for a touchdown in a season (3) and in a career (4). He also scored three rushing touchdowns, and his 28-yard touchdown catch in the final two minutes of the game provided UCLA the decisive score. With his five touchdowns, Drew tied his own school record for most touchdowns in a game. He accumulated 299 all-purpose yards - 162 on punt returns, 65 rushing, 52 receiving, and 20 on kickoff returns.

This is Drew's second UCLA/MET-Rx Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and third of his career.
