White Named SBC Special-Teams Player of the Week
Louisiana cornerback Melvin White has been named the special-teams Player of the Week by the Sun Belt Conference.
White’s 68-yard return of a blocked field goal was the momentum changer in Saturday’s game against Nicholls State. White’s play broke a 14-14 tie and the Cajuns outscored the Colonels 24-7 after the block.
White also had three tackles on defense, including a half-sack and forced a fumble that led to the Cajuns’ first score.
It’s the second straight week that a Cajun has won the special-teams award. Kicker/Punter Bret Baer was last week’s recipient.
