Florida redshirt freshman WR Jacob Copeland was named the SEC Freshman of the Week, the conference announced on Monday.
— Southeastern Conference (@SEC) October 21, 2019
Copeland hauled in three catches for team high 89 yards and a touchdown in the Gators’ 38-27 win over South Carolina on Saturday.
The Pensacola, FL native has 12 receptions for 181 yards and 2 scores on the season in five games.
Copeland, the former four-star prospect, has seen an increase in workload with the injury to Kadarius Toney. Toney is expected back in time for the Georgia game, according to Dan Mullen.
The Gators have a week off before taking on rival Georgia in Jacksonville on November 2. The game has SEC East implications as the winner will control their destiny in the division.
