Washington senior Hau’oli Kikaha has been named the Lott IMPACT player of the week after recording three sacks and a fumble in the Huskies’ 44-19 victory over Illinois.
The Lott awarded is named in honor of Pro Football Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott, and it recognizes defensive players for performance and character. As part of the weekly award, Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation will make $1,000 donation to UW’s general scholarship fund.
Kikaha is second in the Pac-12 this season with five sacks, trailing teammate Danny Shelton, who has six sacks. Kikaha’s 22 career sacks are sixth all-time at UW.
Kikaha is the second UW player honored as a national player of the week this week. Shaq Thompson earned similar honors from the Walter Camp Foundation and Athlon (in addition to being named Pac-12 player of the week).
