Oct. 29, 2012
COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina junior quarterback Connor Shaw has been named AgSouth Athlete of the Week for his efforts in the Gamecocks' 38-35 win over Tennessee on Saturday.
Shaw, a 6-1, 207-pound junior from Flowery Branch, Ga., had his most productive day as the Gamecocks' signal-caller, completing 22-of-32 passes for a career-high 356 yards and three touchdowns. He also carried 18 times for 33 yards and a touchdown. His scoring passes covered 33, 26 and 24 yards as the Gamecocks rolled up 510 yards of offense, the sixth-highest total in the Steve Spurrier Era at South Carolina. The win was Carolina's third-straight over the Vols, something that had never before been accomplished.
