May 10, 2010
Sophomore Brad Lawson (Honolulu, Hawaii/Iolani School) of the No. 1 Stanford men?™s volleyball team was selected as the Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of May 3-9.
Lawson led Stanford to its first NCAA men?™s volleyball championship since 1997 and second overall with perhaps the most dominating hitting performance in the NCAA championship history. Lawson had 24 kills in 28 attacks and only one error, for an .821 hitting percentage ?“ a team season high by nearly .200 points and believed to be a record for an outside hitter in an NCAA final.
Lawson was named co-Most Outstanding Player of the tournament along with teammate Kawika Shoji. This followed earlier honors such as AVCA first-team All-American, MPSF Player of the Year, and MPSF All-Tournament team.
This is Lawson?™s second Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor this season and third overall, and the third for the men?™s volleyball team in the 2010 season.
