Former Ankeny Centennial place-kicker Scott Talmadge has been named the American Rivers Conference Special Teams Player of the Week for the second time in his career.
Talmadge, a sophomore, was a perfect 7-for-7 on PAT attempts to help Loras College to a 49-31 victory over Nebraska Wesleyan in its home opener on Saturday. Those seven makes now rank as the fourth-most in a game in program history.
Talmadge also tallied 457 kickoff yards and averaged 57.1 yards per kickoff. He is now 15-for-18 on PATs this season.
Freshman defensive back Carter Cahill of Ankeny Centennial also plays for the Duhawks, who are now 2-0 in the conference and 2-2 overall.
