CHARLESTON, S.C. - Charleston Southern redshirt sophomore placekicker Alex Usry earned Big South Special Teams Player of the Week recognition following his performance this Saturday against Kennesaw State.
The McDonough, Ga. native went a perfect 3-for-3 from field goal range in Fifth Third Bank Stadium, and added a pair of extra points to lead the Bucs against the Owls.
Usry connected on a season-long 49-yard field goal in the second quarter to put the Buccaneers on the scoreboard. He followed up with a career-long 50-yard field goal in the closing minutes of the half.
His first two field goals put him tied for fourth (49) and second (50) all-time for the longest field goals in CSU history. He added a late 31-yard field goal conversion in the fourth quarter.
