Oregon State Seniors Stephen Paea, Justin Kahut Earn Pac-10 HonorsSalem-News.com Sports
(WALNUT CREEK, Calif.) - Oregon State seniors Stephen Paea and Justin Kahut were recognized by the Pacific-10 Conference and commissioner Larry Scott on Monday for their efforts in the Beavers’ 36-7 win over No. 20 USC on Saturday.
Paea was named the league’s Defensive Player of the Week and Kahut earned Special Teams Player of the Week honors. They join Lance Mitchell (Defensive Player of the Week, Sept. 7) and Ryan Katz (Offensive Player of the Week, Oct. 11) as Oregon State players honored by the Pac-10 in 2010.
Paea picked up the honor after recording six tackles, including 2 ½ for loss, with one sack in the 29-point win. The sack gave him 13 for his career, placing him in a tie for 10th in school history.
Paea, who hails from Los Altos, Calif., also forced a fumble, giving him eight for his career, which marks a new school record.
Kahut, meanwhile, hit on all three of his field-goal attempts, sinking them from 34, 38 and 35 yards, respectively, to set a season-best. He also tallied three PATs to give him 252 points for his career, which moves him into sole possession of fifth-place in Oregon State history.
Paea, Kahut and the Beavers now turn their sights to No. 7 Stanford Saturday when visiting the Cardinal at Stanford Stadium. Game time is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. PT and it can be seen live on Versus.
