TEMPE, Ariz. (www.thesundevils.com) -- Arizona State University junior wide receiver Terry Richardson has been named the U.S. Bank Pac-10 Special Teams Player of the Week after his dominating performance in a 38-28 loss to No. 1 USC.
Richardson, a junior from Corona, Calif., totaled 218 kick return yards, including an 84-yard return for a touchdown in the first quarter against the Trojans. He returned three punts for 111 yards (37.0 average) and three kickoffs for 107 yards (35.7 average). His 84-yard punt return for a TD marked the first by a Sun Devil since current St. Louis Ram wide receiver Shaun McDonald had a 78-yarder against USC on Nov. 4, 2000. It was the 10th longest punt return in school history (9th longest for a TD) and the longest by a Sun Devil since Eric Guliford had a 89-yarder against California in 1992
He also caught one pass for 13 yards and rushed for 11 yards on a reverse. For the season, Richardson ranks 13th in the nation averaging 16.1 yards per punt return (193 yards total) and is 28th averaging 27.40 on kickoff returns.
The No. 17/20 Sun Devils (3-2, 1-1 Pac-10) face No. 25 Oregon this weekend at Sun Devil Stadium (FSN, 7:15 p.m.)
