The other Georgia football offensive weapon that shined against the Bucs has to be Brock Bowers. He made plays on the ground and through the air, which also inked his name in the Georgia Bulldogs’ history books.
All season long, Bowers has been one of the go-to guys for the Dawgs. He does it all from running the ball to outrunning defenses after catching the ball — Bowers possesses all the traits of an elite tight end.
At this time, it isn’t terrible to compare him to NFL tight end Travis Kelce, as Bowers has the same playmaking abilities Kelce does.
Against the Bucs, Bowers finished with four catches for 36 yards and two touchdowns. He also had one rush for 19 yards. Whatever the coaches need him to do, Bowers excels at it.
Bowers led the Dawgs in receiving touchdowns after he caught his first touchdown from starting quarterback Stetson Bennett on a four-yard pass, giving him seven touchdowns on the year. His second touchdown was a 7-yard pass from Georgia quarterback JT Daniels to provide Georgia with a 42-0 lead.
The true freshman now has eight scores on the year, which broke a record for most touchdowns in a season from a tight end as he broke Leonard Pope’s record, which was at seven.
Bowers was also a team player laying out a few key blocks that allowed big plays to happen. Again, he is a star, and as a freshman, most people know his name. Georgia finally has a tight end they can depend on to make plays, and they’re going to keep using him moving forward.
