GAINESVILLE, Fla. - University of Florida redshirt senior kicker Caleb Sturgis (St. Augustine, Fla.) has been named the SEC Special Teams Player of the Week, announced by the league Monday. It marks the third SEC weekly honor of his career as he had been previously recognized on Oct. 17, 2009 and Sept. 19, 2011.

Caleb Sturgis had another solid week for the Florida Gators, as he connected for two field goals and two successful point-after attempts in the 20-17 win in the SEC opener against Texas A&M. He nailed a 51-yard field goal in the second quarter, extending his school-record of 50-plus yard field goals to seven. That number leads the nation among all active kickers.
