SLU’s Petit-Frere Adds to Weekly Honors with LSWA Nod

HAMMOND, La. – After being named Southland Conference Special Teams Player of the Week earlier on Monday, sophomore wide receiver/kick returner Juwan Petit-Frere added to his honors by receiving the same honor from the Louisiana Sports Writers Association, the LSWA announced on Monday evening.


Petit-Frere was honored after helping Southeastern to its first win of the season – a 49-21 victory over Lamar. He is the first Lion to receive LSWA Special Teams Player of the Week accolades since punter Ivy Wall earned the same award on Nov. 8, 2016.


Petit-Frere only had one opportunity versus the Cardinals, but he made the most of it. Late in the first quarter, he burst down the right sideline for a 92-yard kickoff return, which matched the longest of his young SLU career. The return set up a four-yard touchdown pass from sophomore Lorenzo Nunez to senior Juwan Dickey and gave the Lions a 21-7 lead.


In his first season out of Ellsworth Community College, Petit-Frere has quickly established himself as a weapon on kickoff returns. The Orlando, Florida native leads FCS with 494 kickoff return yards and his 38.0 yard per return average places him second nationally. He has posted kickoff returns of 79 yards or more in each of the past three games.


Petit-Frere and his Lion teammates travel to in-state league foe Northwestern State for a 6:30 p.m. contest on Saturday in Natchitoches. The game will be televised on Cox Sports Television and will also on ESPN3 outside of the CST viewing area.
