Stetson Bennett Named Semifinalist for Davey O'Brien Award

Former Georgia Football walk-on Stetson Bennett has just been named to the Davey O'Brien Award Semifinalists list.

Georgia entered the 2021 season expecting to see an explosive and vertical offense under offensive coordinator Todd Monken. They've got it, as Georgia leads the SEC in yards per play, and leads the nation in offense efficiency according to footballoutsiders.com

Though they've gotten this explosive offense in a completely different manor than most expected entering the year. 

Quarterback JT Daniels was the preseason Heisman hopeful for the Bulldogs, and now, it's the former walk-on Stetson Bennett who has just been named to the Davey O'Brien Award Semifinalists list. 

The Award is given to the nation's top quarterback and often times has coincided with the Heisman Trophy Award winner.
