The Georgia Bulldogs remain undrafted on the college football season and quarterback Stetson Bennett is a big reason why.
Since assuming the role of starting quarterback for the University of Georgia, Stetson Bennett has been outstanding. Bennett is playing in place of the injured starting quarterback J.T. Daniels who has an upper-body injury.
With the way he is currently playing, Stetson Bennett may have a say in the starting job even when Daniels returns to full health. When that might occur, no one knows as Daniels continues rehabbing his injury without a clear timeframe on his return. In the meantime, Bennett is keeping the Bulldogs in the win column with their undefeated streak. Stetson Bennett was magnificent once again yesterday (Saturday) leading the University of Georgia to a win over Auburn University.
After the game as the team celebrated, Stetson Bennett shared a special moment with his family. As the players were running off the field in celebration, Bennett notices his twin brothers in the stands. He stops to share a hug and photo with them before heading into the locker room. The family moment was captured on video and is making the round on social media. Stetson Bennett’s father, Stetson Bennett III, shared the tweet not long after the game came to an end.
“What a special moment after CBS interviews your son, Stetson IV, and he stops to hug his twin brothers,” the football player’s father tweeted.
It truly is a special moment for the Bennett family, who are very proud of what Stetson Bennett has accomplished. Running into the tunnel with his fist raised in victory, big brother stops for a little family time with his little brothers.
Stetson Bennett Has the Georgia Bulldogs Offense Humming
Despite entering the season as the backup quarterback, Stetson Bennett is stepping up big time in the 2021 season. The Bulldogs are cruising right along, making quick work of the Auburn Tigers yesterday for a 34-10 victory. Bennett was excellent in the contest, throwing for 231 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 41 yards on six carries.
The Georgia defense gets much of the credit for the team’s success and rightfully so. The Bulldogs have one of, if not the best, defenses in all of college football this year. They surrendered only 10 points to a pretty good Auburn offense, putting the clamps on both the running and passing game. But the offense, under the guidance of Stetson Bennett, hasn’t been too shabby either.
With Alabama suffering a loss yesterday, Georgia has a major claim to be the top-ranked team in college football this season. They will face the also undefeated Kentucky Wildcats next in a battle that will have championship ramifications.
