I do not gamble. So I put in a cellphone name to my greatest good friend, Denny, in the summertime earlier than the school soccer season kicked off to ask him to verify and see what the odds have been on Stetson Bennett successful the Heisman Trophy. Denny rapidly referred to as me again and instructed me it was 100-to-1. Wow! So I stated we must always put down $1,000 with an opportunity to win $100,000.

In my thoughts, it was a lock. Stetson was coming off a nationwide championship, and the season arising for the Georgia Bulldogs appeared difficult however achievable with our sort of expertise. So, we jumped on the Bennett bandwagon and Denny and I every put up $500.

So, now comes the opening sport towards Oregon and we’re favored by 17 factors; we received 49-3. And once more we thought – wow! Stetson has a terrific sport, and now we’re considering if we hold successful large, Stetson goes to New York in December.

Darnell Washington is appearing like Superman, not leaping over tall buildings however over tall defensive backs. Wow! Brock Bowers is a quarterback’s dream – two of the most gifted tight ends in the nation. The coaches are the greatest on each side of the ball – defensively and offensively. And Offensive Coordinator Todd Monken has by no means had a lot expertise to work with. The instruments Stetson has at his disposal are unbelievable.
