Auburn football: Jarrett Stidham among plethora of Tigers raking in honors

Auburn football is the No. 1 topic in the War Eagle Wakeup every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across the Tigers’ sports world. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Auburn football, recruiting, basketball and more.

More recognition for Jarrett Stidham

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn says quarterback Jarrett Stidham is still “like a freshman” as far as experience is concerned.

If that’s the case, Stidham is growing up quickly. On Monday the Stephenville, Teas, native was one of two Tigers to earn SEC Player of the Week honors, Stidham on offense and lineman Nick Coe on defense.

The came Tuesday and the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Player of the Week. These accolades come courtesy of a game in which the sophomore was 13 of 16 for 264 yards and 2 touchdown passes in the Tigers’ 49-10 win against Mississippi State.

This honor he received Tuesday is handed out to the best offensive player each week from the state of Texas. It also means Stidham will be in contention for an annual award given at the end of the year.

That wasn’t the end of the honors, either. Pro Football Focus ran into the same problem that the SEC did: it couldn’t pick just one Auburn Tiger to honor.

Cornerback Carlton Davis and safety Stephen Roberts were both placed on the PFF SEC Defensive Team of the Week while tackle Austin Golson landed on the SEC Offensive Team of the Week.

This weekend’s game against Ole Miss provides another opportunity for Auburn players to get a mention.
