Muscle Milk Athletes of the Week

Ashley Smith

Dec. 3, 2013

FORT WORTH -- TCU has announced that football's Jason Verrett and volleyball's Ashley Smith are its Muscle Milk Athletes of the Week for their performances in their season finales.

Verrett closed his illustrious career at TCU by shutting down Baylor's top wide receiver on Saturday. He held Antwan Goodley, who came into the contest leading the Big 12 in receiving yards and touchdowns, to one catch for 12 yards. Although the ball was rarely thrown his way, the senior from Fairfield, Calif., broke up two passes and had a tackle.

Verrett leads the Big 12 and is tied for sixth nationally in passes break-ups with 1.5 per game. He also has two interceptions.

Smith, who was named Big 12 Rookie of the Week, was instrumental in the Horned Frogs' sweep of Kansas State on Nov. 27 with nine kills and seven digs.

The freshman from League City, Texas, also had 12 kills and 11 digs against Texas Tech on Saturday, which gave her a second double-double on the season and 13th career double-digit kill match.
