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, Ga., punted seven times for an average of 49.9 yards (second nationally) and for a 47.0 net (fourth nationally) during the Bulldogs’ 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.
