Travis Coons, who handles punts, kickoffs, field goals and PATs for Washington, was named Pac-12 special teams player of the week on Monday after making two field goals and downing three of his eight punts inside California’s 20-yard line.

More from the Pac-12 release:

Coons, a senior from Alta Loma, Calif., handled all three phases for Washington as he was the punter, place-kicker and handled kickoff duties for the Huskies in their 41-17 win over California on Saturday night in Seattle. He punted eight times for a 37.8-yard average with three of the eight downed inside the 10-yard line. Coons also remained perfect on the season on field goals, going 2-of-2, including one from 42 yards and another from a career-long 46 yards. Coons also had three of eight kickoffs result in touchbacks.

Arizona quarterback B.J. Denker was named offensive player of the week after piling up 457 total yards against Colorado, and Stanford linebacker Trent Murphy was named defensive player of the week after recording 2.5 sacks and 3.5 tackles for loss against Oregon State.
