Jones & Glenn Honored


Georgia redshirt sophomore Jarvis Jones and senior Cordy Glenn received multiple weekly awards on Monday following their performances in the victory over Florida on Saturday in Jacksonville.

Jones, an outside linebacker, has been named the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week, the Southeastern Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Week, SEC Player of the Week and the College Football Performance Awards National Player of the Week.

Glenn, who is the Dawgs’ left tackle, has been named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week after his team’s 24-20 win over the Gators.

A 6-3, 241-pound native of Columbus, Jones finished with four sacks for minus 27 yards and five total tackles to go along with a forced fumble during his team’s six consecutive win. His four sacks rank in a tie for second most in a game in school history, and the most since Charles Grant had four versus Auburn in 2001. Jones is only the fifth Dawg in school history to record at least four sacks in a contest.

Jones leads the SEC with eight sacks in eight games and is ranked fifth nationally. He helped anchor a defense that held the Gators to minus 19 yards rushing and only a single offensive touchdown. In fact, Georgia’s defense has allowed just six touchdowns in the past 24 quarters.

A 6-5, 348-pound native of Riverdale, Glenn graded out at a team-best 82 percent with three intimidation blocks while starting his 41st consecutive game. A captain for the third straight contest, Glenn was a part of an offense that racked up 185 yards on the ground and 354 total yards as the Dawgs have now scored 20 or more points in every game this season.

Glenn also helped give quarterback Aaron Murray time to direct a comeback from a 17-3 early deficit. Georgia finished 3-for-3 on fourth down conversions in the game, scoring touchdowns on a pair of them.
