AUSTINTOWN, Ohio – The Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) announced this week's athletic performance award winners. Capital University junior Wyatt Pertuset was named OAC Special Teams Player of the Week after tallying his punting duties against Baldwin Wallace University last weekend.

Wyatt Pertuset (Richwood, Ohio/North Union) was called upon to punt four times in last week's matchup against Baldwin Wallace over Homecoming Weekend. He totaled 182 yards in his four punts and averaged 45.5 yards per boot, a new single-game high for the junior. He also set the mark for a new personal long when he cranked one punt 55 yards downfield. Three of his four punts also pinned the Yellow Jackets inside their own 20-yard line.

This marks Pertuset's first career OAC weekly award. He is now the third Crusader to earn a Player of the Week award from the conference, this year.
