Sophomore Darrius Sims was named the Southeastern Conference’s Special Teams Player of the Week Sept. 22 after returning two kickoffs for touchdowns against South Carolina. Sims is the first-ever Commodore and SEC player—and just the 18th player in NCAA history—to accomplish the feat in a single game. He took the opening kick 91 yards for his first career touchdown and later returned a kick 100 yards, matching the university and SEC record for longest kickoff return set by former ’Dore Preston Brown, BS’81, in 1977.
