Moore and Hampton Named Student-Athletes of the Week
Sept. 24, 2008
The TCU Athletics Department selected football's Cody Moore along with volleyball's Nirelle Hampton as its Student-Athletes of the Week for their outstanding performances this past week for the Purple and White.
A senior nose tackle - Moore made four tackles for loss - including two sacks in TCU's 48-7 win over SMU. Moore was tied for a team-high five total stops, helping limit SMU to 10 first downs, minus-8 yards rushing and 210 yards in total offense. He also pulled in his first career interception to set up a Horned Frog score.
Hampton helped the Horned Frogs to a 3-1 record last weekend at the Gopher Invitational in Minnesota. The senior setter had three double-doubles in three matches (UNM, UNC, Winthrop) and totaled 18 kills (1.06 per game), 180 assists (10.59 per game) and 38 digs (2.24 per game) in the tournament. Hampton help lead the Frogs to a 3-2 victory over New Mexico and North Carolina, and 3-0 sweep against Winthrop.
