FREELAND, Mich.--For the second time in a row, Adrian College junior punter Connor Storms (Flint, Mich./Carman Ainsworth High School) has been selected the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Special Teams Player of the Week, it was announced by the MIAA office on Monday.
This marks the third conference weekly award for Storms in his Bulldog career. He also was recognized in Week #5 in 2014 and just last week.
During a 28-21 non-conference win over visiting Lakeland, he averaged a whopping 54.7 yards on three punts, including a career-long 69 yards in the third quarter.
With 164 punting yards against the Muskies, Storms now has 4,692 for his career to cement his No. 6 place on the school's all-time chart. Next up on the list is No. 5 Craig Barnes who compiled 5,470 yards on 153 attempts from 1989-92.
On the season, he lists second in the MIAA with a 41.5 punting average--good for 35th nationally in NCAA Division III. He also leads the conference with nine punts downed inside the 20-yard line.
