EUREKA — For the third time this season, Eureka's Tanner Kuhne (Princeton, Ill./Princeton) is the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Special Teams Player of the Week.
The senior made two critical field goals in the Red Devils' 26-20 overtime victory over NACC foe Wisconsin Lutheran on Saturday, improving to 4-for-4 on the season.
The first was 25-yarder that put EC on the board on its first possession of the game. The second was a 36-yarder that gave the maroon and gold a five-point cushion toward the end of the third quarter.
He also rushed seven yards for a first down on a fake punt attempt at the end of the first quarter, racked up 222 yards on five kickoffs and recorded three touchbacks.
This was the ninth Special Teams Player of the Week award of Kuhne's career. In 2017, he snagged three Upper Midwest Athletic Conference awards, and last season, he earned three more during Eureka's first season in the NACC.
Kuhne is Eureka's all-time leader in extra points with 122 in his career.
