UGA Sports Communications

Georgia junior punter Jake Camarda has been named the Southeastern Conference Special Teams Player of the Week, according to a league announcement.

This marks the second career SEC weekly honor for Camarda. He was also awarded the accolade following the win over No. 12 Auburn in 2019.

Camarda, a native of Norcross, punted seven times for an average of 49.9 yards (second nationally) and for a 47.0 net (fourth nationally) during the Dawgs’ 37-10 win at Arkansas. He dropped five of those balls at the 11-yard line or better and had a long of 63 yards. Camarda finished with four punts of 50 yards or longer and forced three fair catches during his performance.

The No. 4 Dawgs (1-0 SEC) play host to No. 7 Auburn (1-0 SEC) on Saturday. ESPN will televise the matchup at 7:30 p.m.
