K-State’s Thompson Honored for Special Performance

Updated:

 

Press Release Kansas State University:

Kansas State wide receiver/kick returner Tramaine Thompson was named the Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week following his performance in the Wildcats' 48-27 victory over Louisiana, the conference office announced Monday.
 
Thompson, who totaled 234 all-purpose yards against the Ragin' Cajuns, was also named to the Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll after returning the second-half opening kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown before taking a punt 79 yards to the Louisiana three-yard line to set up another K-State score. Thompson, who was on the preseason watch list for the Hornung Award as the nation's most versatile player, also caught two passes for 46 yards.
 
With this kickoff-return touchdown, Thompson joined an exclusive club in K-State history as he became just the third player with touchdowns via a rush, reception, punt return and kickoff return (Mack Herron and Yamon Figurs).
 
The Big 12 honor was the first of Thompson's career, while K-State has a conference-leading 19 Big 12 Players of the Week since the beginning of the 2011 season, including 10 on special teams.
 
Kansas State completes non-conference play against UMass on Saturday with a 6 p.m., kickoff at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The contest will be shown exclusively on K-StateHD.TV, the nation's No. 1-ranked high definition digital network, with audio from the K-State Sports Network. For more information, please visit www.k-statehd.tv.
 
The contest against the Minutemen is sold out, but a limited number of standing-room-only tickets on the Northeast Hill of Bill Snyder Family Stadium are available for $30. To purchase those tickets, call 1-800-221-CATS or visit www.k-statesports.com.
