UGA Sports Communications

Georgia true freshman tight end Brock Bowers has been named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week following the Dawgs’ 62-0 rout at Vanderbilt, according to a league announcement.

This marks the sixth weekly honor for the Dawgs this season and the first for Bowers. Junior ILB Nolan Smith (Defensive Player) and WR Adonai Mitchell (Freshman) earned honors following the win over South Carolina. In the win over UAB, senior QB Stetson Bennett (Offensive Player) garnered an SEC honor. Senior S Christopher Smith (Defensive Player) and senior N Jordan Davis (Defensive Lineman) collected a pair of conference accolades after the season-opening victory over No. 3 Clemson.

Bowers, a native of Napa, Calif., led the Dawgs in receiving for the fourth straight game with four catches for 69 yards and two touchdowns against the Commodores. He added his first career rushing touchdown from 12 yards out to open the game.

Bowers is the first Dawg to score three touchdowns in a game since Sony Michel versus Kentucky in 2017. He is leading his team in both catches (18) and yards (272) and has also scored a team-high five touchdowns this season
