Two Dawgs get SEC Player of the Week Honors


OLB Nolan Smith and WR Adonai Mitchell both earned SEC player of the week awards for their performances in their week 3 win against South Carolina. Smith shares Defensive player of the week with Alabama’s Will Anderson and Mitchell earned Freshman of the week.

Smith had a career-high eight tackles along with 1.5 sacks, one resulting in a safety, and a forced fumble that led to a touchdown. He is thriving in his role as a starter after some had questioned his development in his first few years. He is now second on the team in sacks with 3 after only recording 5 total in his first two seasons in Athens.

Mitchell scored his first career touchdown as a Bulldog on Saturday and caught a career-high four balls and led the team with 77 yards receiving. Two of his receptions converted third-and-longs, and his touchdown grab was a 38-yard score. He will be a star in Athens for years to come.
