J.K. Dobbins picked up more accolades on Tuesday afternoon as the Buckeye running back was named as the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award National Player of the Week, a weekly award honoring the best-performing college football player from the state of Texas.

Dobbins earns the honor after a career performance against Michigan where he rushed for 233 yards and four touchdowns – both career bests – while also pulling down two catches for 49 yards.

This is the second time this season Dobbins has picked up the honor and the third time overall. Dobbins earned the nod after his 29 carries for 181 yards against Indiana in his college debut in 2017 and also after his game against Wisconsin this season where he had 221 yards from scrimmage.

Dobbins was not the only Texas-native honored, however, as true freshman Garrett Wilson was an honorable mention for the award.

Wilson had three catches for a career-high 118 yards and a touchdown.
