Amari Cooper Named SEC Freshman of the Week

Kevin C. Cox

Amari Cooper nabs his first "player of the week" honors from the conference after a record setting performance in Knoxville.

Via SEC Sports:

SEC FRESHMAN OF THE WEEK
AMARI COOPER (Watch Alabama Highlights)
Wide Receiver
ALABAMA
6-1 • 198 • Miami, Fla.


• Cooper set an Alabama freshman receiving record with 162 yards on seven receptions and two touchdowns in the Tide’s 44-13 win at Tennessee.
• He scored the first touchdown of the game on a 23-yard pass and added a 42-yard TD catch in the third quarter.
• Cooper leads the Tide in receiving yards (425), touchdown catches (5) and receptions (28).
• Cooper’s 15.18 yards per catch this season is third among all freshman in NCAA FBS.

Of course, he wouldn't have put up all those numbers without a standout performance from AJ McCarron, who received "Other Outstanding Performances" recognition after going 17-of-22 for a career-high 306 yards with four TDs and zero interceptions. Congratulations to both.
