    UL Football Calais Named SBC Special Teams Player Of The Week



    After setting a school-record with a pair of kickoff returns for touchdowns for the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns in its season-opening win over Southeastern Louisiana, sophomore Raymond Calais was named the Sun Belt Conference Special Teams Player of the Week in a release by the league office on Monday.

    Calais averaged 57.2 yards on four returns against the Lions in a wild 51-48 victory, returning the opening kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown before adding a 100-yard return later in the first quarter. The two returns marked the 19th time in FBS history that a combined two kickoff returns were returned for touchdowns in the same game.

    Calais' 229 all-purpose yards against SLU were the fifth-most recorded during the opening weekend of the college football season and his kick return average helped Louisiana lead all FBS schools.

    We're Number 1!!! Can we just have a kickoff return contest with TU?

    Good for Calais, though. We have not had a return game in a while short of Eli at times.

    I can't believe there is not more national recognition for this. Back to back KO returns is highly unusual and a remarkable feat.
