PRINCETON, W.Va. -- Senior Matt Wilmer was named WVIAC Special Teams Player of the Week following his performance last week against Glenville State.
Wilmer shares the weekly honor with Charleston kicker Puma Nuredini.
Wilmer, a native of Keyser, W. Va., matched a school record with his 100-yard kick return for a touchdown for Fairmont State in the game against Glenville State last Thursday. The return for a score was the first kick return for a touchdown of his stellar career. He also had three punt returns for 25 yards and another kick return for 12 yards against the Pioneers.
Fairmont State is back in action this week on the road at Bowie State for a 1 p.m. kickoff against the Bulldogs.
