Richard LeCounte, Jake Camarda earn SEC Player of the Week honors
UGA football safety Richard LeCounte and punter Jake Camarda each earned SEC Player of the Week honors for Week 6, the SEC announced on Monday.
Richard LeCounte was named SEC Defensive Player of the Week after recording a career-high 13 tackles, three pass breakups, and fumble recovery during Georgia’s 14-3 win at Kentucky.
This was the first SEC weekly honor this season for LeCounte, a senior who is a native of Riceboro, Ga.
Jake Camarda received the SEC Special Teams Player of the Week designation following his efforts in Lexington. Camarda had two punts for a 47.5 yard average with no touchbacks or return yards.
Camarda also placed punts at the Kentucky 7-yard line in the first half and at the 10-yard line in the fourth quarter. This is the third SEC weekly honor for Camarda, a junior from Norcross, Ga.
Fifth-ranked Georgia (4-1) is next scheduled to take on eighth-ranked Florida on Saturday, Nov. 7 at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. The game is set for 3:30pm ET and it will be televised by CBS.
