HADLEY, Mass. -- Bates College senior Kyle McAllister earned NESCAC Special Teams Player of the Week honors, the New England Small College Athletic Conference announced on Sunday.

McAllister (Exeter, N.H.) returned three kickoffs in Saturday's 28-24 win over Bowdoin for 82 yards. In the fourth quarter, he made a 45-yard return that set up the Bobcats' third touchdown in the game. McAllister, an All-NESCAC First Team Defense selection a year ago, also made three tackles from his safety position.

It is the third NESCAC Player of the Week honor in McAllister's career. Last season he twice earned the conference's Defensive Player of the Week award.
