    SDSU FB: Vinatieri receives league honor

    ST. LOUIS - South Dakota State University kicker Chase Vinatieri was honored Sunday as the Missouri Valley Football Conference Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance in the Jackrabbits' victory over Indiana State a day earlier.

    A junior from Sioux Falls, Vinatieri kicked two field goals and scored his second career touchdown as part of the Jackrabbits' 54-51 overtime win at Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium. Vinatieri scored on a 15-yard run on a fake field goal attempt in the third quarter, then kicked field goals of 30 and 27 yards later in the second half. His two field goals upped his career total to 28, passing his uncle, Adam (27 field goals from 1991-94), for fifth place in program history.

    Chase Vinatieri also scored on a fake field goal last season at Montana State. It is the third time in his career that Vinatieri has earned the weekly award.

    The Jackrabbits host Youngstown State on Hobo Day to close out a two-game homestand. Saturday's contest is set for a 2 p.m. kickoff.
