Carter, Martinez named LSC Football Players of the Week – LINK

RICHARDSON – Texas A&M University-Commerce football players Kieston Carter and Kristov Martinez have been named Players of the Week by the Lone Star Conference, as announced Monday. Carter earned Defensive Player of the Week and Martinez was named Special Teams Player of the Week for their efforts in the No. 8 Lions' 33-21 win over Tarleton State.

 

Carter – a senior defensive end from Mexia - was key for the Lions' defense as they wrapped up their 9-1 season with a 33-21 win over Tarleton. He had five tackles with two important tackles for loss and forced a fumble to lead an opportunistic Lion defensive effort, which limited Tarleton to 272 yards.

Martinez – a junior kicker from Edinburg - scored 15 points in the No. 8 Lions' win over Tarleton, becoming the school's all-time leader in scoring in the process. He made field goals of 24, 39, 42, and 35 yards in the game. His four field goals in a game tied an A&M-Commerce record. He now has 289 points, breaking a school record that had stood since 1993. His 160 career PATs is a school record and he ranks second in school history with 43 career field goals. The four field goals in a game is the second most in NCAA Division II this season.

 

The Lions are playoff bound, earning the No. 5 seed in the NCAA Division II Super Region Four. This is A&M-Commerce's third consecutive berth into the NCAA Playoffs. They will face No. 4 seed Winona State on the road on Saturday at 1 p.m. The game will be played at Altra Federal Credit Union Stadium in Winona, Minn.
