Florida’s Kyle Trask was named the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week, the Walter Camp Football Foundation announced on Sunday.

Trask is the 11th Florida player to earn Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors since 2004 and the first since defensive end Jonathan Greenard (Nov. 17, 2019).

Trask was 35-of-49 for 433 yards, four touchdowns, and no turnovers in Saturday’s 31-19 win at Tennessee.

With his four passing touchdowns against the Volunteers, Trask became the ninth FBS quarterback since 2000 with seven games of four-plus passing touchdowns in a season.

The redshirt-senior’s 433 passing yards ranks 10th on the program’s single-game school record list, and Trask joins Danny Wuerffel (four) as the only quarterbacks in Gators history with three career 400-yard passing games.

Trask’s 35 completions rank second on the program’s single-game record list, only behind Rex Grossman’s 36 against Georgia in 2002.

Trask leads the FBS in touchdown passes with 38, ranks second in passing yards with 3,243 and sits at No. 5 in passing efficiency (193.11) this season.

Trask’s 38 touchdown passes this season moves him within one of Danny Wuerffel’s single-season school record (39 in 1996). He is also No. 2 in the FBS in passing touchdown percentage with 11.8%.
