SALISBURY, Md. -- Salisbury University sophomore kicker Tommy Kowalick (Sterling, VA) earned Atlantic Central Football Conference (ACFC) Special Teams Player of the Week honors for his performance on Sept. 5 in the 34-14 Salisbury victory over Division II opponent Pace University.
The Sterling, Va. native, accounted for the first SU points on the day by making a 34-yard field goal with 5:43 to play in the first quarter. Kowalick was 2-for-2 in field goal attempts, and helped cap a nine-play, 69-yard drive with a 37-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter making it 20-14. He averaged 62.3 yards per kickoff, denying the Pace offense the opportunity of establishing good starting field position.
In his rookie season Kowalick won first team All-ACFC honors, when he led the conference in both field goals made (5-6), and point after attempt success rate (95 percent). In 2008, he scored 60 points for the Sea Gulls, and averaged 52.9 yards per kickoff.
