Since his return from injury, Jake Haener set the standard for the player he wants to be recognized as. This month, Haener was named Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week twice for his performance against San Diego State and The University of Nevada, Reno. This is the third time in his career that he has received it.
He has continued his record of passing over 300 yards per game. In his game against the Wolfpack, he scored two rushing touchdowns, the first this season.
This past weekend, Haener set a record of 27-straight games played with a passing touchdown to tie the Mountain West record. Other notable players that sit on top of this record are Derek Carr and former Nevada quarterback Carson Strong.
