Crowell & Boykin Honored


Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell and cornerback/return specialist Brandon Boykin have been awarded weekly honors following their performances during the 24-10 victory over Mississippi State.

Crowell was named Southeastern Conference Freshman Of the Week for the third time this season while Boykin was included on the Paul Hornung Award Weekly Honor Roll for the fourth time in 2011.

Crowell, a 5-11, 215-pound native of Columbus finished with a game-high 104 yards rushing on 22 carries (4.7 average) versus MSU. This was his third game with more than 100 yards and second in a row after tallying a career-high 147 yards at Ole Miss on Sept. 24.

Through five games, Crowell is averaging 103.0 yards a game, which tops all freshmen in the league (fourth in the nation among freshmen) and is fourth overall in the SEC. Behind Crowell’s performances, the Dawgs have scored at least 24 points in all their games, including two matchups against top-12 teams, and are averaging 34.6 points per game.

Boykin, a 5-10, 183-pound native of Fayetteville was second on the team with six tackles (five solo), including a tackle for loss. He also forced a fumble that was recovered by teammate Sanders Commings and had a pass break-up for the Dawg defense.

Boykin also finished with 88 all-purpose yards on special teams. He had two kickoff returns for 43 yards, including a 27 yarder, and three punt returns for 45 yards, including a 30 yarder that set up Georgia’s first touchdown.
