SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento State kicker Brad Cornish was named the national and Big Sky ROOT Sports Special Teams Player of the Week, it was announced today. The honor is the first for Cornish during his career.

Along with the conference award, Cornish was also selected as the national special teams player of the week by The Sports Network and was College Sporting News FCS national special teams all-star.

Against Weber State, the junior set the Hornet record by making all five of his field goal attempts, including four from at least 40 yards out. He began his day by converting a 48-yard attempt which set a career long. He added a 43-yard field goal later in the first quarter. In the second half, Cornish made a 45-yarder before sealing the game with field goals of 32 and 40 yards in the fourth quarter.

The Santee, Calif., native also averaged 65.8 yards on his 10 kickoff attempts. He placed nine kickoffs into the end zone with the exception being a kick which travelled to the 2-yard line following a false start call. Cornish also made a touchdown saving solo tackle on a rare Weber State return.

Cornish's four field goals of at least 40 yards also set a school single-game record. In fact, his performance against Weber State gave him one more 40-plus yard field goal than the team made in the previous three seasons combined.
