Oxy QB Tommy Edwards
Was named SCIAC AOW.

LOS ANGELES — Occidental College quarterback Tommy Edwards(Sherman Oaks) was named the SCIAC Male Student-Athlete of the Week on Tuesday after going 24-34 for 387 yards, four TDs and no turnovers in a 34-21 come-from-behind win over Claremont-Mudd-Scripps on Saturday, despite being sacked five times and hurried on several other throws.

The junior quarterback helped Oxy (1-3, 1-1 SCIAC) erase a 13-point halftime deficit with 28 points in the second half, had three receivers go for more than 100 yards and hit Ryan Rodriguez (Oakley) for an 73-yard TD that gave the Tigers a 27-21 lead in the fourth quarter. Edwards escaped two tacklers, rolling out to his left, and delivered Oxy's longest play from scrimmage this season.

On Oxy' next drive, Edwards methodically worked the Tigers down the field on a 11-play, 69-yard drive that ended in a Casey Dudley (Sacramento) touchdown and ate 5:55 off of the clock to secure Bill Redell's first win as Oxy's head football coach.

It was Edwards first great Oxy game on an emotional night where one of Oxy's greatest quarterbacks of all-time had his jersey retired pregame, the late great Andy Collins.

Edwards said Collins was a big reason why he first learned about Oxy football, growing up in Sherman Oaks during the three-time SCIAC Offensive Player of the Year's 27-game, regular-season undefeated streak from 2004-06.

The SCIAC sports information directors nominate and vote for the Male Student-Athlete of the Week awards. The winners are announced on Tuesday afternoons.
