COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Oct. 4, 2010) - Two ThunderWolves garnered RMAC Player of the Week honors this week, as 100-yard rusher Jesse Lewis (Jr., Loveland, Colo.) snagged the RMAC's offensive honor and Kyle Major (Jr., Littleton, Colo.) claimed the special teams honor.
Lewis and Major helped lift the ThunderWolves to a 33-30 win over Chadron State, which vaulted the Pack into the Top 25 for the first time since restarting the program in 2008.
Major made a career-high and CSU-Pueblo record four field goals in a game, including the game-tying kick that sent the game to overtime. He then made the game-tying shot in the first overtime, and the game-winner in the third overtime to send CSU-Pueblo to victory. Major claimed the school career-record for most field goals in the game, breaking the previous mark of 21, held by Mitch Johnson. He now has 25 field goals in his career. He also equaled the single-season record for most field goals made (nine).
Lewis helped the Pack win a triple overtime home game against Chadron State after carrying the ball 18 times for 118 yards and a touchdown (6.6 yards per rush). He also caught two passes for 15 yards for 133 all-purpose yards. Lewis has scored at least one touchdown in his past seven games. He is leading the RMAC in rushing (129.2 yards per game), and has the most rushing touchdowns (six) in the league.
