Moore named WAC male student athlete of the year.

DENVER, Colo. - Kellen Moore, quarterback for the Boise State University football team, has been named the 2009-10 Western Athletic Conference Joe Kearney Award winner as the outstanding male student-athlete in the WAC.

The award, which is given annually to the top male and female student-athlete in the conference, is named in honor of former WAC Commissioner Joe Kearney who guided the league from 1980-94.

Moore becomes just the second Bronco to win the award. Two-time NCAA National Champion javelin thrower Gabriel Wallin also earned the award for the 2004-05 season.

Amber Kaufman, a multi-sport student-athlete at the University of Hawai'i won the award for the women.

This past season as a sophomore, Moore guided the Broncos to a perfect 14-0 record, including a victory over TCU in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. He earned first-team All-American honors from ESPN.com, SI.com and CBSSports.com, finished seventh in the voting for the Heisman Trophy and was named the WAC Offensive Player of the Year.

He set the NCAA single-season record for the lowest percentage of passes intercepted at 0.69 percent, throwing just three picks in 431 attempts. On the season he completed 277 of 431 passes for 3,536 yards and 39 touchdowns.

In two seasons as the starting quarterback at Boise State, Moore (Prosser, WA) has guided the Broncos to an overall record of 26-1.

"Kellen is the type of student-athlete we strive to recruit to Boise State," Boise State Director of Athletics Gene Bleymaier stated. "He does an excellent job in the classroom, is outstanding on the playing field and represents the University in a first class manner. I don't think we could ask for anything more from out student-athletes."
