RICHMOND, Va. – University of New Hampshire sophomore running back Myles Thomason was named the CAA Special Teams Player of the Week on Monday.

Thomason returned a punt 89 yards for a touchdown to give UNH a 41-17 lead at 2:56 of the third quarter en route to Saturday’s 44-25 victory against the University of Maine at Wildcat Stadium.

Thomason recorded a game-high 174 all-purpose yards and scored two touchdowns in the victory. It was the first time he scored multiple TDs in a game. Thomason had two punt returns for 108 yards, including the aforementioned career-long 89-yard TD – his first punt return for a score.
