BAY CITY, MICH. --  Lake Erie College senior kicker/punter Sam Marcotte (Chardon, Ohio/Chardon) was named the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Special Teams Player of the Week on Monday (Oct. 29).  It is the second time this season a Storm player has earned the weely league honor.

Marcotte set two school records in Lake Erie's 27-20 overtime win at Walsh University on Saturday night (Oct. 27). Marcotte scored the Storm's first points by connecting on the longest field goal in school history, a 50-yard field boot. That kick extended his consecutive games scoring streak to 42 games, every game since the opener his freshman year. He later added a 20-yard field goal to tie the game late in the fourth quarter.

Then, with the game tied at 20 with less than a minute left, Marcotte pinned the Cavaliers deep in their own territory with a school-record 54-yard punt that guaranteed overtime.

Marcotte made all three of his extra point attempts to go along with his two field goals.  He has connected on his last 23 attempts overall dating back to Sept. 29 at Ashland University.

Storm sophomore Tanner Wells (Carrollton, Texas/Parish Episcopal) was the GLIAC Special Teams Player of the Week on Oct. 8.
