After helping Georgia to its first national championship since 1980, freshman sensation Brock Bowers landed NIL representation. Everett Sports Marketing announced Thursday that it has signed Bowers. The agency also represents quarterback JT Daniels, Nick Chubb, Sony MichelBy André Swift, and Jake Fromm. Bowers, who had four catches for 36 yards and a touchdown in Georgia’s 33-18 win over Alabama on Monday, will now look to capitalize on his name, image and likeness after one of the most impressive by a freshman tight end lately. Memory.
Bowers was named to the Associated Press All-America Second Team, Coaches SEC Rookie of the Year, SEC AP Newcomer of the Year and 247Sports Rookie of the Year. According to the senior linebacker dock walkerit became apparent almost immediately after arriving in Athens last January that Bowers could be special.
“Almost as soon as he came in, as we started doing conditioning, summer conditioning and doing that kind of stuff,” Walker said. “The way he pushes himself, the way he stands out, probably wouldn’t be able to tell he was a freshman who just came in, the way he worked. But, yeah, I think he’s about different in the way he’s built and the way he came in and started working he’s done a ton of plays the plays you see him do in the game are the same games he plays in training.
Bowers had 56 catches for 882 yards and 13 touchdowns, all single-season program records for a tight end, with the 13 touchdowns also a program record for any wide receiver. His 10 receptions in the SEC Championship Game set a tight ends record in that game. He also has four carries for 56 yards and a touchdown. Junior wide receiver Kearis Jackson had high praise for his freshman teammate.
“I knew Brock Bowers was going to be a point guard in the fall,” Jackson said. “He was there to make games. He reminded me Travis Kelce just the way he made games. And having a tight end like him has been a huge addition to the team. The drive against Bama in the SEC Championship game, he grabbed the ball, felt three, four times and ended up scoring. It’s a dog. But he’s been certified in my book and just the way he plays, he’s a dog, that’s all I can say.”
Offensive Coordinator Todd Monken has already detailed than Bowers work ethic makes him the type of player who is on autopilot because of his work ethic and he reiterated that on Wednesday.
“He works terribly hard at his craft,” Monken said. “He only knows one speed. So we knew straight away that he could contribute. Did we know that much? Of course not. But once we saw him work, his skills, we knew we were lucky to have someone we could rely on. And as he continued to grow – Coach Hartley deserves a lot of credit, one for recruiting him, two for developing him. We have just tried to continually move him, put him in a position to make plays. He’s embraced that. He works very hard. He has a lot more to do with what we do in terms of how he works and how he prepares than I only had to do with his progression, and that’s just because of the way he’s wired.”
