MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. --- Sophomore punter/kicker David Fiumara of the Moravian College football team has been named to the D3football.com Team of the Week Presented by Scoutware for his performance in Moravian's 52-42 victory over Franklin & Marshall College last Saturday.
Fiumara was called on to punt four times in the game and averaged 53.0 yards per punt with two inside the 20-yard line as well as a career and school record long of 67 yards on his first punt of the game that just rolled into the end zone for a touchback. Fiumara's 67-yard punt was a yard longer than Chad Kurtz's previous record of 66 yards on October 15, 1994 versus Susquehanna University. Fiumara's 53.0 yard per punt average also broke the school record.
"David had great focus and executed very well on Saturday, stated Head Football Coach Jeff Pukszn. "He did an excellent job of keeping the ball away from an explosive punt returner."
Fiumara was also seven-for-seven on extra-points to tie Brian Reckeinbeil's school record of extra points in the game that Reckenbeil set on September 24, 2005 vs. Juniata College. Fiumara scored 10 points Saturday, adding a 23-yard field goal to give Moravian a 10-0 lead late in the first quarter. He also had three kickoffs that averaged 40.3 yards including a pooch kick that the Greyhounds recovered to set up Fiumara's field goal.
Moravian is scheduled to return to action on Saturday, November 2 in a Centennial Conference game versus Gettysburg College at Rocco Calvo Field with kickoff set for a 1:00 p.m.
