Press Release from Southern Miss
Southern Miss junior wide receiver Allanzae Staggers was named Conference USA’s Special Teams Player of the Week on Monday.
Staggers had four returns for a total of 85 yards, with the highlight being a 75-yard pickup that went for a touchdown. It was the first Southern Miss punt return for a touchdown since 2011. Staggers, playing in just his second game as a Golden Eagle, had the third most all-purpose yards on the night and this was his first game of the season returning punts.
The Golden Eagles have won Special Teams Player of the Week in back-to-back weeks. Southern Miss was also awarded back-to-back Special Teams Player of the Week last season (Stephen Brauchle vs. UTSA, Jalen Richard at Charlotte).
Southern Miss will face Troy at M.M. Roberts Stadium on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. The game will be televised on beIN Sports.
