WATERLOO, Ont. (August 26, 2013) - Men's football defensive back Felix Odum of Pickering, Ont., has been named the Laurier Bookstore Athlete of the Week for the week ending August 25, 2013.
Odum provided one of the bright spots for Laurier in their season-opening loss to the Guelph Gryphons on Sunday. The fifth year psychology major picked off Gryphons quarterback Jazz Lindsey in the first quarter before returning it 38 yards to the endzone, giving Laurier their only touchdown of the day. Odum also added 1.5 tackles in the contest. For his efforts, he was named the Hawks defensive player of the game.
This is the first time in his career that Odum has earned Male Athlete of the Week honours.
