Corbello named SEC Player of the Week

LSU's John Corbello has been named the Southeastern Conference Special Teams Player of the Week after kicking a school-record tying four field goals in the Tigers' 33-7 win over Miami (Ohio) on Saturday.<br><br>Corbello, a senior from Lafayette, La., kicked field goals of 42, 29, 35 and 41 yards and then connected on three point-after conversions for a total of 15 points.

Corbello is only the fourth player in LSU history to kick four field goals in a game and he's the first to do it since the 1994 season. Corbello joins Mike Conway, Andre Lafleur and David Browndyke, who did it four times, as the only players in LSU history to kick four field goals in a single game.

 

Corbello also ran his streak of successful field goals to seven straight, a streak that dates back to last year's SEC Championship game.

 

In addition to his place-kicking duties, Corbello also filled in for an injured Donnie Jones to punt for the Tigers. Corbello punted one time, a 39-yard kick that was downed inside the Miami (Ohio) 20-yard line.

 

The SEC Player of the Week honor is the first of Corbello's career and it's the first conference player of the week honor for the Tigers this season.

 

Auburn's Carnell Williams was named SEC Offensive Player of the Week after rushing for 170 yards and two TD's in a 31-6 victory over Vanderbilt.

 

Georgia defensive end David Pollack was named the SEC Defensive Player of the Week after recording 14 tackles in the Bulldogs' 13-7 win over South Carolina.
