    ST. LOUIS – The Misosuri Valley Football Conference has named Southern Illinois safety Anthony Thompson Newcomer of the Week and return specialist Mulku Kalokoh as the conference’s Special Teams Player of the Week, the MVFC announced Sunday.

    Thompson set a school record with a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown in the final minute of SIU’s win at No. 15 Youngstown State on Saturday. The freshman transfer from UCLA also recovered a blocked punt near the goal line and nearly scored another touchdown in the game. In addition, he recovered a fumble on a YSU kick return in the final minute of the first half. He had three tackles in the game.

    Kalokoh, a senior, returned one punt for 20 yards and returned four kickoffs for a total of 65 yards against YSU. However, his biggest contribution on special teams came in the second quarter when he blocked a Youngstown State punt attempt, which led to a Saluki touchdown. That helped swing the momentum for the Dawgs, who scored 28 unanswered points to end the game.

    The Salukis have now earned three conference weekly honors in the last three weeks. Linebacker Tyler Williamson was named Defensive Player of the Week on Oct. 6.
