MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- UW-Stevens Point football senior Christian Almonte (Menomonee Falls, Wis./Menomonee Falls) added another honor to his resume on Tuesday (Dec. 4) as he was named to the D3Football.com All-West Region second team.
Almonte, the 2018 WIAC Special Teams Player of the Year, adds the all-region nod to the litany of awards in his UWSP career. Last month, he earned his second All-WIAC first team award on special teams, while snagging his first offensive selection.
He was the only player in the conference with a kickoff return for a touchdown, doing so in back-to-back weeks from longer than 90 yards each time. He is one of just 12 players in the country with multiple kickoff return touchdowns this season. Almonte also led the Pointers with six receiving touchdowns on the season. Twice during this season, Almonte earned WIAC Special Teams Player of the Week honors.
In 2015, Almonte was an All-WIAC first team selection and picked up his first WIAC Special Teams Player of the Week that season. Almonte concluded his career with 21 touchdowns scored and 3,834 all-purpose yards.
