FIU kicker named Special Teams Player of the week


 After breaking Florida International University’s school record for longest field goal in a game, redshirt sophomore Jose Borregales was named the Conference USA Special Teams Player of the Week, the league office recently announced

Borregales nailed three 40-plus yard field goals against Middle Tennessee, including a school-record 53-yarder to end the first half. Borregales totaled 11 of FIU's 24 points to push the Panthers past the Blue Raiders, 24-21. 

The Panther kicker has made six of his eight field goals this season, while remaining perfect on extra points at 27-for-27 on the year.

The weekly honor for Borregales is his first C-USA Special Teams Player of the Week recognition. Entering the 2018 season, Borregales was named to the Lou Groza Award Watch List after his stellar freshman campaign.
