COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Sept. 6, 2010) - For the third time in his career, CSU-Pueblo placekicker, Kyle Major (Jr., Littleton, Colo.), has been named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Special Teams Player of the Week after a two field goal performance in the Pack's 55-13 win over Northwestern Oklahoma State Saturday.
Major went 2-for-2 in field goals, 7-for-7 in extra point kicks, and he had six touchbacks on seven kicks, averaging 69.9 yards per kick in the Pack's 55-13 home win over Northwestern Oklahoma State.
He hit two 40-plus yard field goals for the second time in his career. Dating back to last season, Major has hit four of his past five field goal attempts. He is just three field goals away from breaking the school record for most career field goals of 21.
Major becomes the second ThunderWolf this season to earn an RMAC Player of the Week honor, joining Damon Schiele (So., Aurora, Colo.), who won the defensive honor last week.
Major won the special teams awards twice previously - on Sept. 15, 2008 and Oct. 27, 2008.
