Fromm Named SEC Freshman of the Week Again

- At the beginning of the season, the question for Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm was how much he would play as a freshman.

Fast forward 7 games, and Fromm has not only lead the Bulldogs to a #3 ranking and 7-0 record but he has picked up another honor.

The Southeastern Conference named the Warner Robins native Monday as its Freshman of the Week for the second time in 4 weeks.

Fromm had 16 completions on 26 attempts for 326 yards, both career highs, with 2 passing touchdowns to lead Georgia to a 53-28 win over Missouri Saturday night.

He also rushed for 16 yards, including a 4-yard touchdown run.

Fromm extended his record to 6-0 as the Bulldog starter and is ranked second in the league in Passing Efficiency at 170.4 through seven games. 

Fromm directed an offense that piled up 696 total yards, which ranks second in UGA history, and scored a season-high 53 points against Missouri. 

The freshman took over as starting quarterback when returning starter Jacob Eason injured his knee in the 1st quarter of the season opener vs. Appalachian State.

The #3 Bulldogs (7-0, 4-0 SEC) have their only off week of the year this weekend. 

Georgia will travel to Jacksonville, Fla., to face Florida (3-3, 3-2 SEC) on Oct. 28 at 3:30 p.m. EST.
