Central Missouri senior punter Matt Jordan has been named the D2Football.com National Special Teams Player of the Week after his performance in the 31-21 win over No. 3 Northwest Missouri last weekend. The Ozark, Mo. native was already named MIAA Special Teams Player of the Week.
Jordan helped UCM control the field position battle all game long against the Bearcats. He punted eight times for an average of 44.5 yards per punt with a long of 53 yards. Five of his punts downed inside the opponent 20-yard line and two of his punts were downed inside the NWMSU two-yard line.
The Mules are back in action this Saturday as they travel to St. Charles, Mo. to take on Lindenwood at 6 p.m. Saturday night.
