Georgia’s Ladd McConkey Named SEC Offensive Player Of The Week
ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia junior receiver Ladd McConkey has been named the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week for the first time in his career following the Bulldogs’ 43-20 rout of Florida, according to a league announcement Monday.
McConkey, a native of Chatsworth, Ga., was named the SEC Freshman of the Week back in 2021 but had never garnered this particular honor.
This marks the seventh SEC weekly honors for the Bulldogs this season. Junior center Sedrick Van Pran was named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week on Sept. 18 for Georgia’s first weekly honor this season. Junior linebacker Smael Mondon (Defensive Player) and freshman place-kicker Peyton Woodring (Freshman) earned the honors after the road win over Auburn. Woodring was again named the league’s Co-Freshman after the win over No. 20 Kentucky while junior quarterback Carson Beck was the SEC Co-Offensive Player of the Week. Woodring won his third straight Freshman honor after the win at Vanderbilt.
McConkey matched his career highs with six catches for 135 yards and added a touchdown versus the Gators. His score came on a 41-yard strike from Beck that put Georgia up 10-7.
The No. 1 Bulldogs (8-0, 5-0 SEC) play host on Dooley Field in Sanford Stadium to No. 14 Missouri (7-1, 3-1) in a Homecoming matchup on Saturday. CBS will televise the matchup at 3:30 p.m. ET.
