Trinity's Biel Named SCAC Special Teams Player of the Week


San Antonio Trinity University Tigers first-year kicker Garrett Biel of Clayton, Calif., has been named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Special Teams Player of the Week.

The 5-foot-8, 164-pound Biel booted a 34-yard-field goal as time expired in the Tigers 22-21 win last Saturday over Texas Lutheran University in Seguin, Texas.

Trinity now stands at 2-0 and will take on Rhodes College (2-0) in an SCAC opener at 1 p.m. Saturday in Memphis, Tenn.

Biel kicked a school-record-tying three field goals (on three attempts) for the Tigers, including a 25-yarder, the opening score of the game, with 13:05 remaining in the first half. With no time left at halftime, Biel fired up a 28-yard field goal.

Four other Tiger players gave kicked three field goals in a game: Peter Licalzi (2007 vs. Birmingham-Southern and Millsaps), Todd Canion (2002 vs. Rose-Hulman), Chris Ulmo (1999 vs. Rose-Hulman and DePauw) and Paul Morris (1999 Austin College).
