Crowell & Rambo Honored


Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell and free safety Bacarri Rambo have been awarded weekly honors following their performances during the win at Ole Miss over the weekend.

Crowell was named Southeastern Conference Freshman Of the Week for the second time this season while Rambo was named the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) National Defensive Back of the Week.

Crowell, a 5-11, 215-pound native of Columbus finished with a pair of career highs with 30 carries for 147 yards rushing. This was his second game with more than 100 yards after tallying 118 versus #12 South Carolina. Crowell’s 30 attempts were the most for a Dawg since Knowshon Moreno had 33 carries in 2007.

Through four games, Crowell is averaging 102.8 yards a game, which tops all freshmen in the league (second in the nation for freshmen) and is tied for fourth overall in the SEC. This is the second time Crowell has garnered this honor during the 2011 season.

Rambo, a 6-0, 218-pound native of Donalsonville grabbed a pair of interceptions and had four tackles (all solo) to pace the Dawg defense against the Rebels. He is now the team’s active leader with nine interceptions, including a team-high four this year.

Rambo is leading the NCAA in picks per game, averaging 1.33 per contest after snagging four through three games.
