SEC honors UT's Colquitt
Britton Colquitt

Posted Oct 8, 2007

Junior punter-placekicker Britton Colquitt is Tennessee’s first Southeastern Conference Player of the Week after his efforts in the Vols 35-14 win over Georgia.

The Knoxville native punted six times for a 42.0-yard average with three punts downed inside the 20-yard line. But more impressively, Britton Colquitt kicked off for the first time this season and landed the Vols’ first two touchbacks of 2007. The Bulldogs averaged only 18.3 yards per return on three attempts to go with their 5.5-yard punt return average.

Georgia’s average starting field position in the game was its own 21-yard line.

Other SEC players of the week were LSU’s Jacob Hester (offense), South Carolina’s Eric Norwood (defense) and Chris Smelley (freshman), Auburn’s Tyronne Green (offensive line) and Alabama’s Wallace Gilberry (defensive line).
