SPORTS BRIEFS: Beamer’s Davis earns GNAC Player of the Week

Central Washington University junior kicker/punter Sean Davis has been selected as the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Special Teams Player of the Week.

Davis had 10 kick-scoring points, making all four of his point-after-touchdown tries and a pair of field goals during Central’s 37-17 victory over Simon Fraser University on Oct. 1 at Tomlinson Stadium. His 48-yard field goal in the first quarter was the second-longest in the GNAC this season (and the second-longest of his career), while he also averaged 40.7 yards per punt.

Davis is the first Wildcat football player of the week this season. It is the third career POW award for Davis after being selected twice during the 2010 campaign.

• David Talcott of Riverbend Golf Club in Kent won the Twin Lakes Amateur Presented by Michelob Ultra with a two-round total of 140 last weekend. Talcott opened with a 4-under par 68 and then fired an even-par 72 in the final round to win by five shots over Ryan Kelly, who finished at 145.

Dan Gleason of Meridian Valley was third at 146 and Ira Armad of Legion Memorial was fourth at 147. Defending champion Tom Lewis finished seventh at 150.

The tournament attracted a field of 92 golfers at Twin Lakes Golf and Country Club in Federal Way.
