Cornerback opened game with kickoff return touchdown in 41-7 win over Indiana State

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.; September 5, 2011  – Penn State cornerback Chaz Powell (New Freedom) has been selected Big Ten Co-Special Teams Player of the Week after returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown to help spark Penn State to a 41-7 win over Indiana State last Saturday.

A senior, Powell shares his first career conference honor with Nebraska kicker Brett Maher.

Powell’s 95-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to open the game was the second of his career. He returned a kickoff 100 yards last year against Youngstown State on the opening kickoff of the second half—the last time that a kick had been returned for a touchdown by Penn State prior to last Saturday.

A former Susquehannock High School standout, Powell  made one solo tackle and helped the Nittany Lions force three turnovers and hold the Sycamores to eight first downs and 170 total yards.

No. 25 Penn State hosts No. 2 Alabama on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 3:30 p.m. The Crimson Tide will be playing in Beaver Stadium for the first time since 1989. All Penn State fans are encouraged to wear white for the all-stadium Whitehouse clash. The Rally in the Valley will be held Friday at 8:00 p.m. in Rec Hall with Coach Joe Paterno and the team. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
