Charlotte, N.C. - Senior Wesley Skiffington (Brandon, Fla.) of the Stony Brook football team has been named Big South Special Teams Player of the Week, the conference announced on Monday. Skiffington accounted for 11 of Stony Brook's 41 points in its 31-point victory over Gardner-Webb.

Skiffington became the first Big South kicker since 2009 to connect on two field goals from 45 yards or longer. He drilled a career-long 48-yard field goal in the first quarter and connected on a 45-yarder in the second quarter.

Skiffington is the FCS' active leader in extra points made (162) and second in total points (285). Stony Brook's all-time leading scorer is a candidate for the Fred Mitchell Award, given to the nation's top place-kicker from FCS and Division II, III, NAIA and NJCAA.
