Jeremy Johnson Named SEC Freshman of the Week … Again

By on October 29th, 2013 in Football, News 8 Comments »

-3911e172f0a3aec7- JJ runs offenseAuburn Quarterback Jeremy Johnson has taken the full reigns of the Auburn offense twice this year and both times he has been recognized as the SEC Freshman of the Week. Johnson was named Monday to his second Freshman of the Week honor for his 192 yard, two touchdown performance against Florida Atlantic.

When Jeremy went into the FAU game for injured Quarterback Nick Marshall Saturday, he connected with wide receiver Sammie Coates on his first play for a 36-yard touchdown. He went on to complete 10-of-16  passes for two TD’s with one pick.

It was the fifth time, including the fourth consecutive week, this season that an Auburn Tiger has garnered South Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors.

Quarterback Nick Marshall was recognized last week as the Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in the Tigers 45-41 victory over Texas A&M. Robenson Therezie was name the SEC Defensive Player of the Week after the Washington State game. And the weeks after that Defensive End Carl Lawson and then QB Johnson were named the SEC’s Freshman of the Week.

Offensive Coordinator Rhett Lashlee said the offense, “Didn’t miss a beat,” with Jeremy in the line up. That’s particularly reassuring for an Auburn team that has to play two SEC road games before returning home to finish out against the Tigers two biggest rivals.

Congratulations Jeremy and War Eagle!

    I have to say… I had visions of AU vs Bama when Stan White was out and the trotted out Patrick Nix… that pass was freaking awesome.

    I was really beating my Johnson drum until reality brought me back to earth with an unbelievable bad throw/interception.

    Ah. It can always be perfect.

    Damn, makes you wonder what this kid can do in 2-3 years. We need some damn good receivers!

    Holy crap.

      Should a said:

      and “AU” trotted out PN…

      It “can’t” always be perfect…

      years. All I know is that AU “needs some damn good receivers!” What could AU do with talent like a “polished” Sammy Coates X 4 or 5 or 6…. ???

      Holy Crap… Holy Crap!

    I loved the way he came in and after a couple of series he got comfortable and took strong command of offense, he is going to be a good one.

    My only complaint is that he looks very slow and cumbersome running the ball. Unless he just has a gaping hole to run through don’t expect Johnson to pick up many yards on the ground against a decent defense.

    On the flipside don’t expect Johnson to pick up many yards through the air with Auburn’s receiving corps. I’ve seen them make fantastic catches and mind-boggling drops. The inconsistency in the passing game makes AU one-dimensional.

    With Marshall it’s not that bad as he can always scramble and gives the defense another element to worry about, Johnson is not a very big running threat. No one needs to put a spy on Johnson.

      Johnson was MR football, do I remember him being mr basketball too or at least in the finalists list too. I know he made a great move on a W Car guy and they talked about him making a basketball move. Maybe we will see some more of his basketball agility when he gets more time to run, I hope so.

      I think Johnson is just a long strider. He looks slower than he is. I don’t have any doubts about his ability to run when he has to.
