Chevan Cordeiro today was named the Mountain West’s offensive player of the week following a breakout performance in UH’s 42-40 victory over San Jose State.
In his first start of the season, Cordeiro accounted for five touchdowns — three passing, two rushing — to tie the league’s freshman record.
Cordeiro completed 23 of 31 passes, and was neither intercepted nor sacked. He also gained 55 yards on the ground.
Cordeiro is the fourth Warrior to win the honor this season, following quarterback Cole McDonald, right wideout JoJo Ward and right slotback Cedric Byrd.
