David Lang Named PFL Player of the Week

INDIANAPOLIS, IND. -- Butler placekicker David Lang, who scored 10 points in the Bulldogs’ non-league game at Indiana State, has been named Pioneer Football League Special Teams Player of the Week.  It’s the fourth time in his Butler career that he’s captured the league’s weekly honor.

Lang was perfect on two field goal attempts and four PAT kicks in Butler’s 48-34 loss at Indiana State.  He kicked a 30-yard field goal early in the second quarter to give the Bulldogs a 10-7 lead, and later in the quarter he added another 30-yard field goal to cut Indiana State’s halftime margin to 21-20.  He also averaged 51.5 yards on six kickoffs.

The senior from Lowell remains perfect on the season with three field goals on three attempts and eight for eight on PAT kicks.  He leads the Bulldogs in scoring after two games with 17 points, and he ranks third in the PFL in kick scoring.

Lang earned PFL Special Teams Player of the Week recognition twice as a sophomore and once last season.
