PRINCETON, N.J.—Sophomore placekicker Oren Milstein was named the Ivy League Special Teams Player of the Week, the conference office announced on Monday afternoon. Milstein earned the honor for the third time in his career as he was selected for the award on Oct. 10, 2016 and Oct. 24, 2016.
Milstein led Columbia in scoring with 11 points in the Lions’ 41-17 non-conference win at Marist on Saturday. He kicked two 39-yard field goals and converted all five of his extra points. He has now converted all 32 consecutive extra point attempts in his career. For the year, he leads the Lions in scoring with 25 points.
As a freshman last year, Milstein was named a unanimous First Team All-Ivy League selection and received Fred Mitchell Award consideration for the national placekicker of the year. The Boca Raton, Fla. native has converted 15 of 18 career field goals and all 32 of his extra point attempts. As a freshman, he ranked among national statistical leaders in field goal percentage (No. 2) and field goals per game (No. 13) and led the Ivy League in field goals made (12) and field goal percentage (92.3) and ranked second in kick scoring (5.7 points per game).
The honor marked Milstein’s fifth Ivy League weekly award.
Columbia (4-0, 1-0 Ivy League) returns to Ivy League play this weekend when it hosts defending league champion Penn (2-2, 0-1 Ivy League) on for its 73rd annual Homecoming Game Saturday at Robert K. Kraft Field at Lawrence A. Wien Stadium. Kickoff is at 1:30 p.m. ET for an Eleven Sports television broadcast.
