There are many experts out there upset about Stetson Bennett being selected as a Heisman finalist. I understand their arguments whether it’s because of his stats or lack of a Heisman moment. Also, due to his tremendous supporting case but here’s why they are wrong.

How Stetson Bennett got Here

We can’t discuss Stetson Bennett without first giving his backstory. Bennett is a true underdog with a story no one would believe. Bennett grew up in Georgia with aspirations to someday play Quarterback at the University of Georgia. Thus, Bennet dedicated his life to making his dream a reality. Unfortunately, his goal would seem impossible at times. After reclassifying and being an almost twenty-year-old freshman, Bennett would only get one FBS scholarship offer. It was from Middle Tennessee, not Georgia. So, Bennett tried to walk onto Georgia’s roster but received no playing time. Thus, Bennett had to spend a year in Juco college before receiving a scholarship to be the backup at Georgia. After being the backup in 2019 and 2020 Bennett finally established himself as Georgia’s best QB in 2021 after an injury to J.T. Daniels. The rest is history, Bennett went on to win the National Championship for Georgia then followed it up in 2022 with another playoff appearance, an undefeated regular season, and became a Heisman finalist.

How Stetson Bennett Earned to be a Heisman Finalist

We all know about Georgia’s defense, but their Offense was one of the best in the country. The 2022 Georgia offense was night and day better than their offense in 2021. They ranked eleventh best in the nation led by Stetson Bennett. Bennett is a dual-treat QB so when you add his rushing and passing numbers. He had over thirty-six hundred yards and twenty-seven touchdowns. Keep in mind he didn’t do much in the fourth quarter because of the huge leads they had. What makes Bennett deserve it the most was how great he played in the biggest games of the season. Bennett dominated Oregon, Tennessee, and LSU. Bennett doesn’t deserve to win the Heisman, but he is definitely a worthy finalist. It may have taken Bennet till he was twenty-five years old, but he can always say he accomplished his biggest dream.
