Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter, formerly of Cherry Creek High School, won a co-offensive player of the week award in the Big Ten.

One of the co-offensive players of the week for the Big Ten conference is a Colorado native.

Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter shared the honor with Taylor Martinez out of Nebraska. Colter is from Cherry Creek High School. He put up 297 yards of total offense and rushed for four touchdowns while helping the Wildcats to a record 704 yards of total offense during their 44-29 win over the Indiana Hoosiers in their first Big Ten game of the season. Although a QB, Colter's yards in this game came from receiving, as he attempted only three passes and gained 2 yards.

Colter has helped lead the Wildcats to a 5-0 record so far in 2012 going into conference play. Colter and the Wildcats will face off against Penn State in their next game Oct. 6.

The last time that a Northwestern player won the Big Ten offensive player of the week honor, it was also Colter. He won the award back in November of 2011, this week's win marks the second time he's won the honor.
