BERKELEY – Sophomore safety Cormac Craigie and sophomore running back Daniel Lasco have been named the Jonathan & Judy Hoff Football’s Scholar-Athletes of the Week head coach Sonny Dykes announced Wednesday.

“Though I am very thankful to be recognized as a scholar-athlete of the week, I am more grateful to be surrounded by such great people,” Craigie said. “Our academic support people have given me all the tools I need to excel as a student-athlete at Cal.”

“It’s all thanks to the support group we have here,” Lasco said. “They know how to keep you focused and motivated.”

Each week two players earn the honor that recognizes student-athletes for an academic skill that has developed through practice, a study habit that has formed into an effective routine, a positive measured outcome that has been achieved through a course assignment or exam, and/or a leadership trait that has been portrayed through academics.

September 18 – James Langford, Sione Sina
September 25 – Michael Lowe, Freddie Tagaloa
October 2 – Cormac Craigie, Daniel Lasco
