Ehlinger named Walter Camp Offensive Player of the Week

AUSTIN, Texas – Texas Football senior QB Sam Ehlinger was named the Walter Camp Offensive Player of the Week, the Walter Camp Football Foundation (WCFF) announced Sunday. It is the ninth time since 2004 that a Longhorn has been recognized by the WCFF's weekly award, and the second time for Ehlinger (Oct. 7, 2018).

The Austin native completed 25-of-33 passes for 426 yards and five touchdowns, both career highs, in Texas' 59-3 season-opening win over UTEP. His 426 yards rank as the third-most prolific passing game in school history, while his five touchdown passes are tied for the second-best single-game output at UT.
