Monster game nets UGA’s Jones Camp honors

We wrote early this morning that you could just go ahead and make Jarvis Jones a lock for SEC Defensive Player of the Week honors.

While that won’t become official until tomorrow morning, the honors have already commenced to rolling in for the Georgia linebacker.

As they do each Sunday, the Walter Camp Foundation announced its National Players of the Week, with Jones claiming defensive honors for Week 9.  And, to be honest, the choice was obvious.

In UGA’s upset win over then-No. 3 Florida in their annual rivalry game, Jones was credited with a career-high 13 tackles — 12 of them solo — 4.5 tackles for loss, three quarterback sacks, two fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles.

On the offensive side of the ball, Arizona’s Matt Scott claimed Camp honors for his performance in the win over USC.  The senior passed for 369 yards and ran for another 100 in the 39-36 win over the Trojans.  He also accounted for four touchdowns — three passing, one rushing.

Below is the year-to-date list of weekly 2012 Camp honorees:

Week 1: West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner

Week 3

    Played Lights Out. He’s probably a better athlete than Te’o

    Jones and teammates truly did have a monster game. I did not believe they would do it. They truly put it together in this game and now in the driver’s seat in the East. I know a certain ex-UGA player whom I worked with in a community service activity who must be flying high right now.

    I saw Te’o and Minter and Jones play. I think Minter and Jones are better players who would probably get more PR if they played for the Irish.

    When J.J. is healthy, he is hands down the best LB in the country no doubt. He is one of those rare defensive [players that can cause a team to alter their offensive game plan, rather than challenge him. Some NFL team is going to be getting a terrific player after this year.
    He could still play college ball next year as well, but I think his best move is to go for the money. After all of the accolades he will receive this year, he really doesn’t have anything left to accomplish in college ball, unless UGA could muster up a team capable of winning it all next year, which I don’t think they can do. He has given his best to UGA, so he doesn’t owe any team anything after this year.
