Tennessee sophomore quarterback Tyler Bray is off to a hot start in 2011.
He went 17 of 24 for 293 yards and three touchdowns against Montana in week one, but it was his performance in the Volunteers’ 45-23 win over Cincinnati that has earned him the Heismanpundit Player of the Week honor for Week 2 of the 2011 season.
The 6-6, 210-pound Bray, who might have the quickest release in all of college football, threw for 405 yards and four touchdowns on 34 of 41 passing against the Bearcats. He is completing 79 percent of his passes and has yet throw an interception this year.
More importantly, he appears to have the Tennessee offense on the right track after several years of struggles.
While Bray is a few more games like this away from being a legit Heisman candidate, he is off to a great start.
