Junior kicker Nick Powell has been named the Skyhawk Athlete of the Week for the week of October 19, 2015. 

Powell kicked the game-winning 25-yard field goal with six minutes remaining in Point's 24-21 victory over No. 23 Webber International on Saturday. The Northport, Ala. native was also a perfect 3-3 on point after attempts. 

The win kept the Skyhawks unbeaten in conference play this season and was the first victory over a ranked NAIA opponent in the program’s four-year history.

Powell was also named The Sun Conference Special Teams Player of the Week for the second consecutive week. Powell has converted 22 of 23 extra point attempts and made two field goals in three tries to lead all Sun Conference kickers in scoring. He also leads the conference in PAT kicking percentage.

The Skyhawks return to action on Saturday, Oct. 24, when they host Southeastern University at 1 p.m. on Homecoming Day.
