University of Wyoming Kicker Stuart Williams Receives Conference Honor
Wyoming Cowboys senior kicker Stuart Williams has been named the Mountain West Special Teams Player of the Week for the first time.
Williams had a perfect day last Saturday, as he made both field-goal attempts and both PAT conversions to score eight points in Wyoming’s 20-19 victory over Florida Atlantic.
He kicked a career-long 50-yard field goal in the second quarter and an 18-yard, game-winning field goal with 15 seconds remaining. It was the second game-winning field goal in his career. He also made one last year versus Hawaii in overtime.
This is the third time in four weeks, the Pokes have had a player receive a conference accolade. Linebackers Mark Nzeocha and Jordan Stanton won the honor on defense earlier this season.
Boise State running back Jay Ajayi and New Mexico linebacker Dakota Cox earned offensive and defensive player of the week honors, respectively.
