3. Brock Bowers makes history with pair of touchdowns
Georgia football starting tight end Brock Bowers made history on Saturday against the Buccaneers. He had four catches for 36 yards and two touchdowns, leading the team in receptions and scores.
Those two scores proved to be historic as he earned his seventh and eighth on the season, which is the most ever by a Georgia tight end as he surpassed Leonard Pope’s record.
On the season, Bowers leads the Dawgs with 34 catches for 552 yards and eight touchdowns. He averages 50.18 yards a game and 16.24 yards an attempt. No one thought Bowers would be in this position as a true freshman, yet here he is making a name for himself.
Bowers has shut down the whole “Georgia doesn’t throw to its tight end” narrative, and he has rewritten the history books. He is such a crucial weapon for this offense and is starting quarterback Stetson Bennett’s favorite target.
To see him break a record Pope held is pretty impressive because Pope was one of the last dominant tight ends Georgia had, so it’s nice to see the Dawgs utilizing this weapon.
Bowers is a unicorn because he can catch the ball, tote the rock, and is one of the fastest on the team. There isn’t much Bowers can’t do, and the Dawgs will take it.
He was there for Georgia when they didn’t know who would be a receiving playmaker. With so many injuries, Bowers got his shot, and look at him now — 11 games in, and he already set a school record.
There is no telling what next great thing this young man does, but it sure is nice to have him on the Dawgs team instead of somewhere else.
