WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University football team (2-1, 1-0 Patriot League) earned dual weekly honors from the Patriot League for the second consecutive week, as senior SLOT Keerome Lawrence (New Haven, Conn./New Haven) has been named the Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week and sophomore cornerback Jeremy Moore (New Haven, Conn./James Hillhouse) was named the Special Teams Player of the Week. The honors were announced by the conference offices on Monday afternoon.
Lawrence and Moore both returned to their hometown of New Haven, Conn. and put on a show as the Hoyas came one play away from a 3-0 record. Lawrence made eight catches for 129 yards and ran for a touchdown, while Moore returned the opening kickoff of the second half 85 yards for a score and also recorded seven tackles and four pass breakups.
Lawrence's honor gives Georgetown consecutive Offensive Player of the Week awards for the first time in school history and the two this year match the total of the previous four seasons. Georgetown's four overall weekly awards in 2010 match its amount from the past two years. Lawrence's 100-yard receiving game was the Hoyas first since Robert Lane accomplished the feat against Yale last season.
Moore is the first Hoya to earn weekly special teams honors since Eric Bjonerud won the honor in 2007. Moore's kick-off return for a touchdown was the Hoyas first since Jesper Ihezie returned a kick for a touchdown against Lehigh in 2004.
Georgetown will play its first home game of the season when they host Holy Cross at Multi-Sport Field at 2 p.m. on Saturday afternoon. Saturday is also homecoming on the Hilltop.
