Giant Killer Stone Award--ASU

Untitled Document

Defensive end, Victor Butler ran away with this week's Giant Killer Stone Award, tallying a record number of points for the year. Butler was on fire against the Sun Devils, recording 2.5 sacks and 3.5 tackles for loss. He also capped the game with an interception on ASU's two-point conversion attempt, sealing the Beavers victory.

Butler's partner on the opposite side of the line, Slade Norris also had a big night for the Beavers as the duo teamed up for four of the five sacks on ASU quarterback Rudy Carpenter.

Linebacker MVP, Keaton Kristick made big plays all night, recording a team high nine tackles and one sack. Kristick played with emotion and helped keep the defense fired up during the hard fought battle at Reser Stadium.

The secondary MVP is a familiar name this year on the Giant Killer Stone Award list. Greg Laybourn once again had a good game, with perhaps his biggest play of the night coming again on the ASU two-point conversion attempt in the final seconds of the game. While Carpenter ran out of the pocket, Laybourn was there to greet him, forcing him to throw the interception to a waiting Butler in the end zone. Laybourn showed once again why he is a tenacious run stopper.
