ROCKVILLE, Md. — Sophomore Wesley Medeiros (Gilford, N.H.) was named the Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) Special Teams Player of the Week for the week ending Sept. 14 on Monday morning.
Medeiros was superb all afternoon for Norwich in its kicking game as he helped the Cadets to a big 10-7 non-conference win over St. Lawrence on Saturday.
Medeiros went 1-for-1 on his field goal attempts, added an extra point for a four-point day and punted seven times for a 34.3 yard average with a long of 46. Medeiros set up the NU defense for a standout day, doing his part by starting the SLU offense on its own side of the 50-yard line for much of the day.
This marks Medeiros' third ECFC Special Teams Player of the Week nod in his career after winning the honor twice last season as a freshman.
Norwich (1-1, 0-0 ECFC) returns home to Sabine Field at Haynes Family Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 20 when it hosts Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) at 1 p.m. in its final non-conference game of the season.
