September 30, 2013MONROE, La. -- ULM wide receiver / punt returner Rashon Ceaser has been named the Louisiana Sports Writer's Association Special Teams Player of the Week, the LSWA announced today.
Ceaser returned a punt for a touchdown in the third quarter of Saturday's game as he recorded a career-long punt return of 88 yards. In the third quarter he became the first Warhawk to record a punt return for a touchdown since Mikkal Henry returned a punt 53 yards for a score against Troy on Nov. 10, 2001.
Ceaser finished the night with three punt returns for 97 yards. He also caught four passes for 45 yards. Ceaser is currently leading the Sun Belt Conference in punt return yardage with an average of 17.3 yards per return.
His 97 total punt return yards are a season-high among SBC punt returners and he is one of three SBC players to return a punt for a TD this season. Ceaser's 88-yard return is the fifth longest punt return in SBC history.
ULM opens SBC play on Thursday night against WKU. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:32 p.m.
