WASHINGTON - Sophomore punter Matt MacZura (Cranberry Twp., Pa./Central Catholic) has been named the Patriot League Special Teams Player of the Week for the week ending on September 10, after the Hoyas 14-13 victory over Lafayette on Saturday night at Multi-Sport Field. Junior SLOT Max Waizenegger (Fairfax, Va./W.T. Woodson) earned Patriot League honorable mention.

MacZura aided Georgetown in a defensive struggle with Lafayette, punting nine times with a 35.8 average and placing three kicks inside the 20 as the Hoyas went on to a 14-13 victory. He had a long punt of 45 yards. MacZura takes his first Special Teams Player of the Week honor. MacZura was named Patriot League Rookie of the Week last season on September 27, 2010.

Waizenegger earned his first conference honors, after making three catches for 48 yards and both of Georgetown's touchdowns in a 14-13 win over Lafayette. The game was Waizenegger's first career multi-touchdown game. Waizenegger also caught the eventual game-winning touchdown in the Hoyas' 28-24 victory at Lafayette last season.

The Hoyas return to action on Saturday, September 17 when they travel to the New Haven, Conn. to take on the Yale Bulldogs in their season-opener.
