Geyer Named Player of the Week

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Cody Geyer For the second straight game, junior Cody Geyer was named special teams player of the week by the Centennial Conference.

Geyer returned a punt 73 yards for a touchdown to give Muhlenberg the lead for good in a 35-10 win at Gettysburg yesterday. The touchdown was the first on a punt return (not a blocked punt return) for the Mules since 2003, and it was their longest scoring punt return since 1982.

In Muhlenberg’s previous game, Geyer returned a punt 82 yards to change the momentum in a 38-18 win against Susquahanna.

For the season, Geyer is second in the CC in punt return average (19.3) and third in all-purpose yards per game (165.8). His total of 328 yards on punt returns is the most by Mule since 2003.
