OGDEN — Weber State junior quarterback Mike Hoke has been named Big Sky Conference co-Offensive Player of the Week after his performance in leading the Wildcats to a win over Northern Colorado Saturday.
Hoke, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound junior from Kailua, Hawaii, was nearly flawless in Weber State’s 45-21 road win over the Bears. He completed 20-of-25 passes for 280 yards and five touchdowns and no interceptions. He finished the game with an efficiency rating of 240.1. Hoke threw four TD passes in the first half as the Wildcats raced out to a 35-0 lead. Three of his TD passes were caught by Shaydon Kehano, including a 57-yarder in the second quarter.
Hoke has thrown a Big Sky-best 11 touchdown passes and no interceptions in four games this season. He has not thrown an interception in 160 pass attempts dating back to the 2009 season, the second-longest active streak in the nation.
He leads the conference and ranks ninth in the country in pass efficiency at 160.02. He is also thid in the Big Sky in passing and fourth in total offense. This is Hoke’s first career Player of the Week honor. He shared this week's honor with Sacramento State quarterback Jeff Fleming.
Weber State (2-2, 2-0) will play at defending national champion Eastern Washington (0-4, 0-2) this Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in Cheney, Washington. The game will be broadcast live on Altitude TV.
