MINNEAPOLIS – Salisbury University sophomore punter Kyle Hamby has been named to the D3football.com Team of the Week, the website announced on Tuesday.
Hamby tied his career high with five punts in a 37-7 win over Hartwick College on Saturday. Three of his kicks landed inside the Hawks 20-yard line.
