Oct. 28, 2013
COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Senior quarterback Connor Shaw has been named AgSouth Athlete of the Week.
Shaw was selected as the SEC Offensive Player of the Week by the league office, the National and SEC Offensive Player of the Week by Athlon Sports, the Davey O'Brien Quarterback of the Week, and is one of eight quarterbacks named by the Manning Award as its "Stars of the Week."
Shaw, a 6-1, 209-pounder from Flowery Branch, Ga., came off the bench in the second half, shrugging off a knee sprain, to lift the Gamecocks to the come-from-behind win. He completed 20-of-29 passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns, leading Carolina to scores on each of its last five possessions to overcome a 17-0 fourth-quarter deficit. Included was a strike to Bruce Ellington on a fourth-and-goal from the 15 in the first overtime period.
