The Georgia Bulldogs will have their star quarterback Stetson Bennett back for another season. He announced that he will return for the 2022 season. This is great news for the Bulldogs.
Earlier this month, Georgia defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide to win their first College Football Playoff National Championship. It was their first National Championship in 41 years.
At the beginning of the season, Bennett was the backup. In the season opener, Bulldogs quarterback J.T. Daniels led the team to a 10-3 win over the Clemson Tigers at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The following week, head coach Kirby Smart announced that Carson Beck was going to start against the UAB Blazers. Beck received the start against the Blazers because Daniels was limited in practice.
He was ruled out with a core injury. In the game, Beck was benched and Bennett took over.
Bennett led the Bulldogs to a 56-7 win over the UAB Blazers. He went 10 of 12 for 288 yards with five touchdown passes.
Bennett always wanted to be a Georgia Bulldog. He walked on to the football program under Smart.
Unfortunately, at the time, Smart and the coaching staff did not believe in him to give him a shot to be the starter. He then transferred to a junior college. Eventually, he would return to the Bulldogs program.

“I hope it gives somebody a little hope,” he said. “Just keep fighting, keep your mouth shut and work hard. Life’s tough, you’ve just gotta fight through it.”
The Senior went 185 of 287 for 2,862 yards in 14 games. He also had 29 touchdown passes and seven interceptions.
“I love this place. I love this team. I believe in myself and I love everything about this place. I wanted to win a national championship here.”
He hopes that the Bulldogs will have the same success at the end of the 2022 season.
