Gamecocks Wideout Jeffery - SEC Freshman of the Week

Just as LOHD predicted he would, the gamecocks wide receiver was today recognized as the top freshman for this past week by the SEC- HERE - this is what they wrote.....

Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
6-3 • 217
St. Matthews, S.C. (Calhoun County HS)

• Jeffery caught seven passes for 138 yards and three touchdowns in South Carolina’s 28-26 win over Kentucky.

• He scored from 10, 28 and 22 yards out on passes from Stephen Garcia.

• The three touchdown receptions tied for the second-best single game performance in school history.

• Jeffery came into the game with just five catches for 61 yards through the first five games before his breakout performance on Saturday.

---Also Gamecocks QB Stephen Garcia was recognized for a "outstanding performance" by the SEC in Week 6 for connecting on 16-of-23 passes for 233 yards with three TDs and an interception against Kentucky.

Great Job and Go Cocks!

No kidding SEC, he should have been SEC offensive player of the week. Way to cheap out and pick Crompton, we all know he sucks.

true, the Tenn QB is like the blind squrriel as even it can find a nut every so often...

Alshon deserved the SEC Off Award, seriously the 2nd TD catch with one arm was sick!

The SEC will start to caterer more and more to getting UT back to the Top. I think they are seriously worried that Kiffen might drive UT off a bridge, especially they he is going.
