JDBlawg's Freshman of the Week - Jordan Jenkins

Jordan Jenkins lived up to the name, the "Freak" showed Missouri a sample of what offenses are sure to fear in the near future. In a game where the second half was most important to success, the depth of JJ, JJ, and JJ showed through. The youngest of the "3 JJ's" is only a freshman but from watching him play you could never tell. He was everywhere in the second half and his fight and determination was superior in his will to corral the fumble caused by the elder Jarvis Jones. He added to his fumble recovery four total tackles including one for loss and two unassisted, he has 6 tackles this season already. I am very excited about what the future holds for Jordan Jenkins and UGA.

Honorable Mention: Marshall Morgan

One of the more memorable performances by a Georgia kicker in the past couple years, Marshall Morgan had only one flaw in his game, his extra points. He was in a foreign stadium with raucous fans as a freshman, less than a full year separated from high school. He faced a 51 yard field goal to tie the game at 3 a piece, and the kick was beautiful. Then after UGA marched down the field, they were prepared to tie the game at 10 and on his PAT, the ball flailed wildy away from the upright. But he made up for it, by making his other field goal attempt and making the rest of his PAT's. I am sure he will make the freshman of the week soon.
