Kyle Trask earns national offensive Player of the Week honor
The Walter Camp Football Foundation has announced the Football Bowl Subdivision National Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, presented by Generation UCAN, for games ending December 5.
Florida QB Kyle Trask was named the Offensive Player of the Week.
Trask passed for 433 yards (35-of-49) and four touchdowns as sixth-ranked Florida defeated Tennessee, 31-19, clinching the SEC East Division regular-season title.
With his four passing touchdowns against the Volunteers, Trask became the ninth FBS quarterback since 2000 with seven games of four-plus passing touchdowns in a season.
The redshirt senior’s 433 passing yards ranks 10th on the program’s single-game school record list and joins Trask with Danny Wuerffel (4) as the only quarterbacks in Gators history with three career 400-yard passing games.
Trask’s 35 completions ranks second on the program’s single-game record list, only behind Rex Grossman’s 36 against Georgia in 2002.
Trask leads the FBS in touchdown passes with 38, ranks second in passing yards with 3,243 and sits at No. 5 in passing efficiency (193.11) this season.
Trask’s 38 touchdown passes this season moves him within one of Wuerffel’s single-season school record (39 in 1996). He is also No. 2 in the FBS in passing touchdown percentage with 11.8%.
Trask is the 11th Florida player to earn Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors since 2004, and the first since defensive end Jonathan Greenard (Nov. 17, 2019).
This is the 17th year that the Walter Camp Football Foundation will honor one offensive and one defensive player as its national Football Bowl Subdivision player of the week during the regular season. Indiana LB Micah McFadden was named the Defensive Player of the Week.
