Clint Boling

ATHENS - Georgia junior right tackle Clint Boling and sophomore defensive back Brandon Boykin have been given Southeastern Conference weekly awards, according to an announcement by the league office on Monday.

Boling was named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week and Boykin was named the SEC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Boling, a 6-5, 304-pound native of Alpharetta, Ga., graded out at 94 percent during the Bulldogs’ 41-37 win over South Carolina. The Chattahoochee High School graduate registered 10 knockdown blocks as Georgia managed to pile up 308 total yards on offense.

The Bulldog offensive line helped give senior quarterback Joe Cox time to complete a career-high 17 passes for 201 yards and a pair of touchdowns while only allowing two sacks. Georgia is currently tied for No. 1 in the conference in Red Zone offense since the Bulldogs have scored all six times they have been inside their opponent’s 20-yard line.

Boykin, a 5-10, 185-pound native of Fayetteville, Ga., set a new Georgia record by returning a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown against the Gamecocks. This was the longest scoring play for Georgia in Sanford Stadium history and he is only the 36th player in SEC history to have a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

Boykin also had another return for 48 yards and finished with 187 kickoff return yards, which stands at the No. 2 mark in school history (Scott Woerner, 190 yds. in 1977 vs. Kentucky). As a team, the Bulldogs had 252 kickoff return yards on seven returns, which topped Woerner’s record and is the fourth-best total in SEC history.

Defensively, Boykin snagged the Bulldogs’ first interception of the season and his first career pick, setting up one of Georgia’s two field goals. In addition, Boykin finished with a career-high four tackles (all solo).

This is Boykin’s first SEC weekly award. Boling was also named the league’s Offensive Lineman of the Week following Georgia’s win over Tennessee in 2008.
