Ash named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week
Sept. 17, 2012
Texas Longhorns sophomore quarterback David Ash has been selected as the Big 12 Conference Player of the Week for offense, the conference announced on Monday. The honor comes in Ash’s ninth career start.
Ash helped the Longhorns post more than 300 yards passing (326) and rushing (350) for just the third time in school history (first time in a road game), and its 66 points were the most in a game since the 2005 Big 12 Championship win over Colorado (70-3). It was the most points Ole Miss had given up in a game since 1917.
The sophomore from Belton threw TD passes of 46 and 55 yards to wide receivers Mike Davis and Marquise Goodwin, respectively. Davis (124) and Goodwin (102) each posted 100 receiving yards in the game. It marked the 12th time in school history that feat occurred. Goodwin (5-129) and Jaxon Shipley (4-121) each went over 100 receiving yards last season at Baylor.
For the season, Ash has completed 55 passes on 72 attempts (76.4%) for 703 yards and seven touchdowns with no interceptions and has rushed for 58 net yards on 11 carries with a 49-yard touchdown against New Mexico.
