Georgia's Roquan Smith won the Butkus Award earlier this week, given to the nation's best linebacker.

He has already earned Mid Season AP All American.

Friday, the lightning quick linebacker was named a Walter Camp first team All-American.

He's one of three SEC players to receive the prestigious honor this season.

An amazing statistic about Roquan: He racked up 113 tackles this season and only missed six.

That goes beyond impressive.

Georgia next plays on New Year's Day at 5:00pm in the Rose Bowl against Oklahoma.

The winner will play for the College Football Playoff National Championship.
