Auburn QB Jeremy Johnson named SEC Freshman of the Week

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

One start, one weekly honor for Johnson.

After his first career start against Western Carolina, Auburn quarterback Jeremy Johnson was named SEC Freshman of the Week on Monday.

Johnson played on nine offensive drives, and he led the Tigers to eight touchdowns. When his time was up, he had completed 17-of-21 passes for 201 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. Johnson did a nice job on almost all of his throws, hitting his receivers in stride, and he forced only one throw into coverage.

Of course, considering Auburn's opponent, a solid performance was expected. Though, the quality of his throws should be noted.

It's the second week in a row for an Auburn player to be named the conference's Freshman of the Week. After the Tigers' 30-22 win over Ole Miss, defensive end Carl Lawson picked up the honor thanks to six tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, two sacks and one QB hurry against the Rebels.
