Sims’ Kickoff Returns Set SEC Record

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.
