Kevin Fogg was named Big South Special Teams Player of the Week on Monday following his performance in Liberty's home opener against No. 24 Norfolk State on Saturday.

Fogg finished the game with 177 all-purpose yards, a figure that included four punt returns for 93 yards and two kickoff returns for 84 yards.

Fogg's weekly accolade from the Big South was due largely in part to a 77-yard punt return for a touchdown during the third quarter. It marked the fourth special teams touchdown return of his career (three kickoff returns for a touchdown and one punt return for a touchdown).

Fogg also finished the game with a 67-yard kickoff return that could have been 10 yards longer if it was not partially brought back following a penalty.

The return was Liberty's first punt return for a touchdown since Dominic Bolden returned a punt for a score against Elon in the 2008 season finale.

Defensively, Fogg was one of six defenders to finish the game against Norfolk State with six stops, including a team-best five solo tackles.

Fogg did share the Big South Special Teams Player of the Week honors with Coastal Carolina's Alex Catron. The kicker helped Coastal Carolina to a triple overtime win over Furman by hitting three field goals and four PATs for 13 total points.

Fogg and the rest of the Flames will continue their stretch of three-straight match-ups against ranked FCS opponents this weekend in Missoula, Mont. Liberty will take on No. 14/12 Montana in the first-ever meeting between the two programs on Saturday at Washington-Grizzly Stadium.
