JMU’s Scotty McGee is the CAA Football Special Teams Player of the Week after his game-winning touchdown in #1 James Madison’s dramatic 38-31 win on the road over #5 Richmond. The Virginia Beach, Va., native who tallied a total of 100 return yards in Saturday’s win, broke JMU’s career kick return touchdown mark with his fifth in the game against the Spiders.

With less than 30 seconds remaining in a tied ballgame, the Spiders were forced to punt from their own 34-yardline. cGee, who had already returned a kickoff 31 yards earlier in the game, caught the punt at the Madison 31-yardline and raced down the JMU sideline for the game-winning TD with the clock showing just one second remaining. The 69-yard punt return for a touchdown marked JMU’s 10th-longest punt return in school history and was the longest punt return in CAA Football this season.
