Shock named to AA Watch List

University of Georgia senior quarterback D.J. Shockley was named the Cingular Wireless/ABC Sports All-America Player of the Week, according to an announcement on Thursday.

Shockley won the award determined exclusively by fan voting with 44 percent of the vote, beating out three other finalists who were selected by a panel of ABC Sports and ESPN college football analysts.

In the first start of his career against Boise State last week, Shockley completed 16-of-24 passes for 289 yards and five touchdowns and also rushed for 85 yards on five carries and one touchdown as the Bulldogs defeated the Broncos 48-13. Shockley's five touchdown passes tied the school record set by former Bulldog David Greene, who threw for five scores last year in Georgia's 45-16 win over LSU. By throwing for five touchdowns and rushing for one, Shockley set the school single-game record for touchdown responsibility.

For Shockley, it is the third award he has won this week after also being named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week and the Sporting News College Football Player of the Week.

Shockley and the rest of his teammates return to action this Saturday when they take on the South Carolina Gamecocks at Sanford Stadium. Kickoff for is slated for 5:30 p.m. ET, and the contest will be televised nationally by ESPN. All Georgia games are broadcast live on the Bulldog Radio Network on AM 750 WSB in Atlanta and 106.1 FM and 960 The Ref in Athens and can be heard on georgiadogs.com, the official website of UGA Athletics, as well.
