KALAMAZOO, Mich. - For the second time in as many games, Andrew Haldeman was named the Mid-American Conference West Division Special Teams Player of the Week.

Despite a 35-32 overtime loss, Western Michigan scored 20 of its 32 points off the foot of Haldeman as the red shirt sophomore made a career high six field goals at Eastern Michigan. 

Haldeman connected from 48 (season long), 23, 30, 29 and 25 yards in regulation and made a 29 yard FG in overtime.  It is the second most FGs made in a game in WMU history and the most since Mike Prindle made seven against Marshall on Sept. 29, 1984.

For his efforts, Haldeman was also named the National Kicker of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards on Monday morning.

The Ferndale, Mich., native leads the team with 56 points on the season with career highs in field goals made with 13.  Haldeman earned MAC West Special Teams POTW for his performance at Massachusetts as well, giving him three such honors for his career.
