Mike Mohamed Named LOTT Impact Player of the Week

The Lott IMPACT trophy awards great defensive performance on the field and great character off of it. CalBears.com with the story.

Senior preseason All-America linebacker Mike Mohamed was named the Lott IMPACT Player of the Week on Tuesday for his performance in Cal’s 52-7 victory over Colorado at Memorial Stadium on Saturday. Mohamed is on the national watch list for the 2010 Lott IMPACT Trophy.

Mohamed had a huge game against the Buffaloes with a career-high-tying 14 tackles and his seventh career interception (Cal’s active leader) that he returned 41 yards for his second career touchdown with 0:11 seconds remaining in the first half to give Cal a 31-0 lead at the break. He added a quarterback hurry and 0.5 tackles for loss.

“He’s one of the most versatile linebackers I’ve seen in a long time,” said former Cal head coach Mike White, now on the LOTT Impact Foundation Board of Directors. “He’s a very physical presence against the run and has tremendous reaction to the pass. More importantly, he’s a great young man and a great leader on the team.”
