HOUSTON - University of Houston senior Mark Hafner was honored Wednesday as the John Mackey Tight End of the Week by the Nassau County Sports Commission.

The Waller, Texas, native hauled in seven catches for 64 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-28 loss to Air Force in Dallas last weekend. He became the first Cougar player since 1992 to record three touchdowns in a game and has caught at least one touchdown pass in each of the first three games to open the 2008 campaign.

This season, Hafner leads the Cougars with 22 catches for 246 yards and six touchdowns.

Hafner and his Cougar teammates return to action at 2:30 p.m. (Central), Saturday when they face Colorado State in Fort Collins, Colo. The game can be heard live on 950 AM KPRC with Tom Franklin calling the play-by-play action, Ted Pardee providing color analysis and Chuck Brown reporting from the sideline.

Other candidates for this week's award included Jermaine Gresham of Oklahoma and Southern Miss' Shawn Nelson.

The John Mackey Tight End of the Week is an honor distinct and different from the annual John Mackey Award. This weekly honor was started in 2004 to draw attention to individual play by Tight Ends during the active season. The Tight End of the Week acknowledgment does not have a direct bearing on the final John Mackey Award selection process.

The Nassau County Sports Commission, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization created to enhance quality of life of Nassau County residents through sports, is responsible for the administration of the John Mackey Award and the John Mackey Award Selection Committee. The 2008 recipient of "The Mackey" will be announced at the Home Depot ESPNU College Football Awards Show live on ESPN and presented at the Nassau County Sports Commission Annual Awards Dinner on April 27, 2009.
