UGA Football: Isaiah Wynn Named SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week
ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia senior left tackle Isaiah Wynn has been named the Southeastern Conference Offensive Lineman of the Week following his performance in the victory at Vanderbilt, according to a league announcement.
This is the Bulldogs’ fourth SEC weekly honor of the season and first Offensive Lineman of the Week honor in 2017. Senior outside linebacker Lorenzo Carter was named the Defensive Player of the Week after the win at #24 Notre Dame and freshman quarterback Jake Fromm garnered Freshman of the Week honors in the victory over #17 Mississippi State. Last week, senior tailback Nick Chubbwas named the league’s Offensive Player of the Week.

The last time Georgia had an Offensive Lineman of the Week award was when Chris Burnette garnered the honor following the win at Tennessee in 2013.
Wynn, a native of St. Petersburg, Fla., graded out at 92 percent and allowed no quarterback hurries, hits or sacks during the 45-14 rout of the Commodores. Wynn posted eight “knockdown” blocks while the Bulldogs rolled up 423 yards rushing, which is the sixth most in school history and the most since 1987 when Georgia had 454 yards versus Vanderbilt.
The #4 Bulldogs (6-0, 3-0 SEC) return home to face Missouri (1-4, 0-3 SEC) on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET. The SEC Network will televise the matchup at Sanford Stadium.
