Georgia football has the best tight end in the country, as Brock Bowers will be around to torture opponents for the next couple of years.

The true freshman won the Football Writers Association of America Freshman of the Year Award and Shaun Alexander Freshman of the Year honors.

He is the first Georgia player to do so and the first tight end. These two awards cap off an outstanding freshman campaign that was one for the record books.

Brock Bowers will torture teams for years to come, and Georgia football seems to love it.

Bowers finished the season leading the Dawgs with 56 catches for 882 yards and 13 receiving touchdowns. He broke Terrence Edwards’ single-season touchdown record by two scores and Orson Charles’ single-season receiving yards record for a tight end.

There wasn’t much Bowers didn’t do outside winning the John Mackey Award, but that is in the past, and a national championship ring eliminates any ill-will toward those who refused to give credit.

After he won those two honors on Monday, there was a Q&A, and South Carolina Gamecocks head coach Shane Beamer jumped in and made a great joke about how he wasn’t too excited to play him the next couple of years.

His comments should tell Georgia football fans precisely what kind of impact this young man has already had on the SEC.

It didn’t matter if a team prepared for Bowers. He found ways to make plays. Alabama saw that happen in the SEC Championship Game, and while they did a better job in the national championship game, Bowers still made a big play in the fourth quarter when the Dawgs needed it most.

Bowers will likely have a little bit of a more challenging time during his sophomore year because teams will do a better job preparing for him, but the funny thing is, he will only be better.

The Dawgs have one of the most lethal weapons on their offense, and that has to be a good feeling. They will use him to torture offenses because they know how difficult it is to cover him.

Bowers will need to keep working hard this offseason, but if anything tells us about him, year two will be more explosive and more torturous.
