The Sun Belt Conference office announced that Texas State sophomore wide receiver Kole Wilson was given the conference Special Teams Player of the Week honors.

Wilson reached the end zone twice on Saturday in Texas State’s 52-44 victory against South Alabama. He earned the honors after opening the second half with a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to kickstart the Texas State scoring attack after halftime. The kickoff return was the first of Wilson’s collegiate career.

Wilson finished the game with 226 all-purpose yards. He had 128 yards on special teams, six receptions for 102 receiving yards and one touchdown reception, giving him eight on the season.
