TCU Muscle Milk Athletes of the Week

Sept. 29, 2015

FORT WORTH, TexasKelly McGovern of women’s golf and Aaron Green of football earn this week’s title as TCU’s Muscle Milk Athletes of the Week based on impressive performances.

The Woodlands native led the Horned Frogs to a second place finish in the Golfweek Conference Challenge in Wolcott, Colorado. McGovern finished second overall in the field with a 1-over 215, just 9 strokes back from medalist Emma Henrikson of San Diego State.

McGovern’s final round of 67 was a career low and just one stroke behind the TCU record of 66 set by Prisela Campbell. The Horned Frogs shot a final round 2-over 290 and finished with a 14-over 878 and now have a pair of second-place finishes this season.

The Frogs will return to action on Oct. 6 at the University of Washington Invitational.

Senior running back Aaron Green stole the show as the No. 3 Horned Frogs pulled off a 55-52 thriller in Lubbock against a strong Texas Tech football team in their Big 12 opener.

Green rushed for 165 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries. Green, however, made the play of the day through the air on a fourth-and-goal from the four-yard line with just 23 seconds left in the game. Quarterback Trevone Boykin’s fired a pass too high for receiver Josh Doctson, but Green hauled in the tipped pass as he fell out of the back of the end zone.

Video review confirmed that Green had control of the ball and got a foot in bounds for the touchdown. The 55-52 win moved the Frogs to 4-0 on the season. No. 3 TCU will welcome the Texas Longhorns to Amon G. Carter Stadium at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3rd.
