Athlete of the Week: September 8

Terjean Saffold

Adams State College senior running back for the football team, Terjean Saffold, has been named as the Athlete of the Week for the week ending on Sept. 4.
Saffold broke an ASC available history (1997-present) record with his 33 carries in Saturday’s season-opening win over Dixie State, and his 179 yards gained on the ground was the most by a Grizzly since 1999 and the third most in available history.
It was also the second straight season that Saffold has surpassed the  100-yard mark in a season-opening win, and was also just the second time since 2001 that a Grizzly running back has eclipsed the century mark in a season-opener.
Saff old broke off a game-lone 32-yard scamper to begin the Grizzlies final possession late in the third quarter. He had four runs that went longer than 10 yards, three of which came in the second half.
The Athlete of the Week award, which will be handed out weekly, was selected by a vote of media members and ASC athletic administrators as well as by visitors to the Grizzly website, who could cast their vote in an online poll.
Saffold got all voting members of the administrations first  place vote while also nabbing 38.2 percent of 102 votes that were cast online.
Volleyball player Dominque Davis, men’s soccer player Michael Miller and women’s soccer player Autumn Boyer were this week’s other nominees.
