COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Sept. 26, 2011) - CSU-Pueblo punt returner Josh Sandoval (So., Pueblo, Colo.) was named the RMAC Special Teams Player of the Week Monday, marking third time in four weeks a ThunderWolf has garnered the weekly special teams honor.
Sandoval returned four punts for 134 yards (33.5 average) and a touchdown Saturday
night against Fort Lewis in a 47-0 win. His longest return was 82 yards for the Pack's first punt-return touchdown since 2008. Sandoval claimed both the CSU-Pueblo career punt return yardage record (held by Alan Webster), the single season punt return yardage record
(held by Markus Turner), and the single game punt return record (his own mark set three weeks ago).
Sandoval also added six receptions for 105 yards. He racked up 239 all-purpose yards against the Skyhawks.
Sandoval joins teammate Kyle Major (Sr., Littleton, Colo.), who earned the conference's special teams honor last week as well as three weeks ago, as ThunderWolves to claim the RMAC's Special Teams Player of the Week award.
The 14th-ranked ThunderWolves will travel to conference foe Chadron State Saturday as the Pack looks to improve to 5-0 on the season.
