Brock Bowers as Obi-Wan Kenobi

One of the most famous characters in the Star Wars franchise is Obi-Wan Kenobi, and we think Brock Bowers is his match.

Both are fan favorites and two of the most versatile characters. Kenobi has lightsaber combat skills and uses the force strategically. Bowers can catch the ball and block.

Versatility is huge for both of these players as it only helps them become more likable.

Kenobi is charismatic and confident, while Bowers has a similar personality. Bowers became a household name as a freshman and gave a new definition of a successful tight end.

From young Kenobi to the older version that meets Luke Skywalker, he is a monumental character. Bowers is already that after one year at Georgia.

While Kenobi can be a bit of a rebellious rule-breaking guy, you can say the same for Bowers because he turned the tight end world on its head. The John Mackey Award refused to make him a finalist for whatever reason, but he was clearly the best in the country.

Loyalty is a significant characteristic for most of these characters and players on this list, and it reigns true for Bowers and Kenobi. However, that is the point, isn’t it? Loyalty to defeat the Emperor and loyalty because it’s a football team are two crucial traits.

The 2021 Georgia football team was one of the most loyal and tight-knit teams, which led them to win the title. There is also a lot of loyalty that comes with being part of the rebellion and with the resistance. So it works out perfectly.
