Tennessee football’s John Campbell Jr and Charles Campbell each earned SEC weekly honors for their performances in the Vols’ 33-27 win over Kentucky on Saturday night.

John earned Co-SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week honors while Charles earned SEC Special Teams Player of the Week honors.

Tennessee’s starting kicker made all four of his field goal attempts and all three of his extra point attempts. Campbell hit from 34, 35, 44 and 49 yards against the Wildcats. The Jackson, Tennessee native’s 49-yard field goal was the longest of his Tennessee career.

“Charles did a great job tonight,” Tennessee coach Josh Heupel said postgame. “That was a huge part in the football game. I haven’t mentioned him. That’s not right. He did an unbelievable job. Long one, (he) got the ricochet. He was living right.”
