Richmond native Travis Feeney (pictured in the middle), a senior linebacker with the University of Washington, was named as one of the three Pac-12 Players of the Week following a huge performance against USC on Saturday.

Feeney, who graduated from Pinole Valley High, led a Husky defense that defeated USC in Los Angeles 17-12 on Saturday, finishing the game with seven total tackles, including three and a half for losses and two and a half quarterback sacks, according to the Pac-12. His sack on third down forced USC to miss a field goal. The Husky defense held USC to 1-of-13 on third down.

Running back Devontae Booker and Tom Hackett, both from the University of Utah, joined Feeney as Pac-12 Players of the Week.

Each week an offensive, defensive and special teams player are chosen for the honor.
