Charleston Southern junior placekicker Tyler Tekac was named this week’s Wingate by Wyndham Student-Athlete of the Week after leading the Bucs to the 20-19 win over Liberty this past weekend.
With six seconds left in the game following a Liberty timeout, Tekac drove the ball into the wind and hit from 42-yards out for his second field goal of the fourth quarter to secure the Bucs' fourth consecutive win over Liberty. He previously had given CSU the 17-16 lead with a 24-yard field goal earlier in the fourth quarter before being called onto the field for his game-winner.
Tekac was also a perfect 2-for-2 on his extra point attempts. The 42-yard conversion was his fifth 40-plus yard field goal of the season.
