If Javier Arenas's first half of play didn't win the SEC's Special Teams Player of the Week, they should stop giving it. Fortunately, Javy took the prize this week
. Arenas had an electric 87 yard punt return for a touchdown in the first quarter. The punt return TD was the fourth for the junior. Four punt return touchdowns ties David Palmer's Alabama career record.
Arenas also broke Harry Gilmer's 61-year-old single game record for punt return yardage in the first half. All of this before being knocked into halftime of last week's Clemson game on a return early in the second half. His injury isn't expected to hold him out of the Western Kentucky game Saturday.
