In the closest vote of the year, freshman wide out Riley Cooper edged out freshman quarterback Tim Tebow in the voting for Alley-Gator Great player of the week honors
Cooper was also named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week after catching 3 passes for 82 yards and 3 touchdowns on Saturday.
THE REASON WHY:
I picked Riley Cooper. He showed a lot of maturity overcoming his nerves. It would be hard to drop a touchdown pass, puke on the field and then come back out and play. Not only did he come back and play but he caught the ball 3 times. Each of those times it resulted in points for the Gators. - mas0n311
Riley was freaking AWESOME!!!! I was screaming 86.....86...86!!
He is going to be nails next year - UTSPARTAN
