SOUTHAMPTON, Pa. – Kyle Trask was named the Maxwell Award Player of the Week, the Maxwell Football Club announced on Tuesday.
Trask was 30-of-43 with 474 yards passing and four touchdown passes on Saturday as he continued his record-breaking season against a Georgia defense which ranked No. 12 in scoring defense and No. 13 in total defense nationally coming into the game.
Trask’s 474 passing yards is the second-highest total in school history and just eight yards shy of Tim Tebow’s single-game school record of 482 set in the 2010 Sugar Bowl. The redshirt-senior set a single-game school record for passing yards against Georgia by the end of the third quarter, which he finished with 412 passing yards.
Trask threw for 300-plus yards against a Southeastern Conference opponent for the sixth time in his career, tying Doug Johnson (1996-99) for the fourth-most 300-yard games versus SEC teams in school history. Rex Grossman (12 – 2000-02), Danny Wuerffel (10 – 1993-96), and Shane Matthews (nine – 1989-92) are the only Gators with more 300-yard games against SEC teams.
Trask posted the eighth 300-yard passing game of his career, passing Johnson (1996-99) and Chris Leak (2003-06) for the fourth-most 300-yard passing games in school history. Trask
