Football: Calais Named SBC Special Teams Player Of The Week

Raymond Calais

Breaux Bridge native ranks fifth in all-purpose yards among FBS players 

NEW ORLEANS – After setting a school-record with a pair of kickoff returns for touchdowns for the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns in its season-opening win over Southeastern Louisiana, sophomore Raymond Calais was named the Sun Belt Conference Special Teams Player of the Week in a release by the league office on Monday.
Calais averaged 57.2 yards on four returns against the Lions in a wild 51-48 victory, returning the opening kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown before adding a 100-yard return later in the first quarter. The two returns marked the 19th time in FBS history that a combined two kickoff returns were returned for touchdowns in the same game.
Calais’ 229 all-purpose yards against SLU were the fifth-most recorded during the opening weekend of the college football season and his kick return average helped Louisiana lead all FBS schools.
Louisiana (1-0) will return to action on Saturday when it visits American Athletic Conference member Tulsa (0-1) in a 3 p.m. contest.
