Swift Named SEC Offensive Player Of The Week

Georgia junior tailback D’Andre Swift has been named the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week for the third time in his career after his performance during the 21-0 win over Kentucky, according to a league announcement.

Swift also received SEC weekly honors after the Dawg victories over the No. 9 Wildcats and No. 24 Auburn last year. So far this year, Georgia has five weekly league awards with senior place-kicker Rodrigo Blankenship earning three and junior left tackle Andrew Thomas securing another.

Swift, a native of Philadelphia, Pa., carried the ball 21 times on a rainy night for 179 yards (8.5 average) and scored twice during the Dawgs’ victory over the Wildcats. His seventh career 100-yard rushing game was highlighted by a 39-yard scoring run in the third quarter that broke a 0-0 tie. Swift muscled his way into the end zone from three yards out late in the fourth quarter to clinch the 21-0 victory. He leads the SEC through seven games for the Dawgs with 107.7 yards/game average.
