EDMOND, Okla. (10-4-11) – A pair of Northwestern Oklahoma State University Rangers has been honored following the team’s victory over Missouri S&T this past weekend.
For their play in the win over the Miners, 22-17, junior quarterback Kyle Jech was named the offensive player of the week and freshman punter P.J. Stimson was named the special teams player of the week by the Central States Football League on Monday.
Jech is the first Ranger to be honored on the offensive side of the ball this season. In the homecoming win, the Kingfisher, Okla., native threw 168 yards passing and two touchdowns on 14 completions. He also added a touchdown on the ground in the fourth.
Stimson, a native of San Jose, Calif., picked up the honor as the Rangers punter, averaging 33.6 yards on five punts. Late in the fourth quarter, Stimson stuck a punt inside the five yard line, setting up a defensive series for the Rangers to save the game.
Northwestern (2-3, 1-0) returns to their conference schedule this week against No. 10 Southern Nazarene at home. The game is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. at Ranger Field.
