Adrian Guzman named WAC Special Teams Player of the Week


STEPHENVILLE — Tarleton Football kicker Adrian Guzman has had a special start to the 2022 campaign, and got recognized for his efforts this week.

On Monday, the Western Athletic Conference named Guzman its Special Teams Player of the Week following his performance at TCU on Saturday.

Guzman made his lone field goal attempt, a career-long 47-yarder, and both of his extra points in Fort Worth. This is Guzman’s second career WAC weekly award, his other coming last year in mid-October after his performance against Dixie State.

His 47-yard successful try makes back-to-back weeks for Guzman setting new career-longs in field goals. He made a 46-yarder last week vs. Mississippi Valley State. The Texan sophomore owns the two longest field goal makes in the WAC this season.

Guzman has the most field goal makes in the WAC this year. Only 10 players in the FCS have a longer FGM than Guzman in 2022.

In just Week 2 of the awards, this is Tarleton’s first weekly honor of the year. In 2021, Tarleton took home seven weekly awards in 12 weeks of the season.

Also announced Monday, Utah Tech’s Quali Conley and Abilene Christian’s Tyrin Bradley were named WAC Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively.
