Georgia football fans, current, and former players, and others made sure starting quarterback Stetson Bennett felt the love last night after falling short in the Heisman Trophy race. He may not have won the prestigious award, but the support he got showed that individual awards aren’t the main thing. The team is far more important, and the Dawgs still have work to do this season.
Bennett received many touching messages on Twitter after the ceremony, and we found some of the best ones to share with everyone. It’s obvious how much the team and many other people love him. His story touches so many different people, and that trophy doesn’t mean he is any less of an elite quarterback who could make history this year.
He is a legend and has one of the best college football stories since Rudy and the others. There is nothing quite like the Mailman delivering on Saturdays between the hedges. These messages show how much he means to the Georgia football program and college ball in general. There is no telling how many kids who have been told they’re not good enough are still trying because of Bennett.
Georgia football starting quarterback Stetson Bennett gets all kinds of love after the Heisman ceremony.
It was heartbreaking to see Bennett fall short, but at the same time, I think Georgia fans knew it wasn’t his award to win. Being in New York City was good enough and something that Bennett rightfully earned.
Check out these touching tributes to the Mailman as we show love this holiday season. It is the season to let folks know how much we appreciate them, and Georgia football fans brought it for Bennett.
This whole thread from Ashley Espie is something to check out. She has been a huge Bennett fan from Day 1, and this thread is her tribute to the Mailman. Is she his biggest fan? Probably, and it’s people like her who have shown him support no matter what he does on the field that deserves to get highlighted in this piece.
Jamon Dumas-Johnson tweeted him after the announcement, and that is what it’s all about. This team has one to two games left to play and wants to make history.
Anthony Dasher is right — Bennett is by far the best college football story we’ve seen in our time. There have been others, but people know who Bennett is because of his incredible story — from walk-on with absolutely no chance to being a national champion and still writing the ending of his college legacy.
Individual awards are great to win, but it’s the team trophy that one team can hoist in January that all college football teams want more than anything. Bennett could play and win his second straight — now that is far more impressive than winning the Heisman Trophy.
