Wayne State College senior placekicker Ethan Knudson was announced late Monday morning as the Northern Sun Conference Special Teams Player of the Week following his play in Saturday’s 62-0 victory over Upper Iowa.

Knudson, a 6-3, 185-pounder from Harlan, Iowa (Harlan HS), became Wayne State’s all-time leader in made field goals with 25 and 32-yard field goals Saturday while also going a perfect 8-8 on PAT kicks in Saturday’s shutout win over the Peacocks. He also averaged 59.7 yards on 11 kickoffs with five touchbacks.

With his two made field goals Saturday, Knudson (38-49) surpassed Nick Hope’s 36 field goals (36-50) from 2006-09. He also ranks second in career points by a kicker at Wayne State with 223, trailing Nick Hope’s mark of 245 points.
