Former Spencer standout notches national honor

Two members of the Georgia State special teams earned national recognition for their performances in the Panthers’ 24-21 victory at Campbell on Saturday.

Darren McCray, a former Spencer standout, was named national Kickoff Returner of the Week in FCS by the College Football Performance Awards for his 96-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

Punter Bo Schlechter, who punted four times for a 50-yard average with three punts inside the 20, was an honorable mention choice for Punter of the Week by the CFPA.

McCray, a redshirt freshman, has scored a touchdown in each of the last two games. Against Jacksonville State on Sept. 18, he scored Georgia State’s first touchdown on a 41-yard reverse.
