The SEC announced its players on the week for Week 8, and once again, Kentucky gets a player on the list.
George Asafo-Adjei was named the SEC offensive lineman of the week after his outstanding performance against Vanderbilt. This is the second time this season that George has been named the lineman of the week and his stats show why.
Against the Commodores he had 23 blocks at the point of attack with 3 knockdown blocks and he also didn’t make a single mistake all night. He graded out at a 89% for the week, played every offensive snap, didn’t allow any sacks or QB pressures and made Benny Snell’s life a lot easier.
George now joins Bunchy Stallings with two offensive linemen of the week awards and makes this the 4th time this season that Kentucky has had the lineman of the week through just seven games, a dominating performance by this unit.
Its easy to see why Benny Snell after every game immediately thanks his offensive line in postgame interviews because they are paving the way for him to rack up the yards and TDs that he has been.
We knew coming into the year that this could be one of the best offensive lines we have ever had, and they have proved that to be true while also getting the national attention they deserve for winning the battles in the trenches against SEC opponents.
Here are the rest of the SEC players of the week.
