With two weeks in the books, many SEC players are coming into their own and shining above the rest. Here are three players that the Armchair staff believes earned Player of the Week honors this past week.

Special Teams
Deebo Samuel, South Carolina WR/KR

What has Deebo done to earn this honor? Oh only have two 97 yard kickoff returns in as many games. The kid is fast. At some point, obviously, people will stop sicking to him, but for right now South Carolina will enjoy the points that come off of his runs.

In addition, he took off for a 25 yard touchdown run and five catches for 45 more yards to add to an already successful game. If thats not worthy of a helmet sticker and player of the week honors, I don’t know what is.

Offense
Shea Patterson, Ole Miss QB

Ole Miss QB Shea Patterson was the real deal on Saturday. He threw for a school record 483 yards and a career-best 5 touchdowns against UT Martin. Obviously, UT Martin isn’t a power house program, but that is still extremely impressive.

He hit nine different receivers and was 32 of 43 for a 74.4 completion percentage. If he can do even half of that against the rest of the teams on their schedule, Ole Miss could be the real deal….or at least on offense.

Defense
Lorenzo Carter, LB, Georgia

I’d like to preface this by saying that Carter came off the bench for this performance against #24 Notre Dame. He jumpstarted a seemingly dormant defense in a come behind victory. He finished with seven tackles, two forced fumbles, a recovered fumble and a sack.

He helped the Georgia defense hold Notre Dame to 55 total yards. All I have to say after watching the above video is wow. You go bro.

Just a Texas A&M senior majoring in Journalism who is a huge sports fan, hating stereotypical pink jerseys, and wishing I could do anything as well as Dan Bailey kicks field goals, Dirk Nowitzki hits fadeaway jumpers, Myles Garrett and Von Miller sack quarterbacks, Dez Bryant throws up the X after touchdowns, and Adrian Beltre just plays baseball. Interested in sports banter and complaining about how Dallas sports consistently underachieve? Hit me up on Twitter @shelbae_nichole. I’m always down for a good conversation, or trash talk. Thanks, Gig Em, and God Bless y’all.
