FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Colorado State punter Pete Kontodiakos has been named Mountain West special teams player of the week for his exceptional performance in the Rams' 42-27 win over Hawaii last Saturday. It is his second Mountain West player of the week honor, and first since 2009.

Kontodiakos, a candidate for the Ray Guy Award, broke the Mountain West single-game record with an average of 61.8 yards per punt on four attempts, best in the nation this year by a punter with at least three attempts in a game. His punts traveled 72, 60, 59 and 56 yards, and he placed two inside the 15-yard line. The previous MW single-game record was 58.0, held by BYU’s Matt Payne (Nov. 2, 2002 vs. San Diego State).

The senior from Tarpon Springs, Fla., ranks fourth in the nation in punting at 47.7. He is on pace to break Colorado State's all-time single-season record of 46.1, set by Mike Deutsch in 1976. His 73-yard punt at Air Force earlier this season is tied for fourth-longest in the nation in 2012, and he has launched four of the five longest punts in the Mountain West this season (73, 72, 72 and 69 yards).

Kontodiakos won his first Mountain West special teams player of the week award for his play in CSU's 35-20 win over Nevada on Sept. 19, 2009. He has earned All-Mountain West honors each of the last two seasons. It is Colorado State's second MW special teams player of the week honor this season (Sept. 3, K Jared Roberts), and third overall conference honor in 2012.
