Georgia tight end Brock Bowers received a handoff from quarterback Stetson Bennett 75 yards for a touchdown on the second play of Georgia's Week 4 game against Kent State. Bowers' running touchdown is his second of the season and his fourth overall.

Bowers, a sophomore, had a productive rookie season in 2021, catching 56 catches for 882 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also ran the ball four times for 56 yards and one touchdown. Bowers was a four-star recruit out of Napa, California before coming to Georgia. He was also the No. 105 overall player and No. 3 tight end in the 2021 recruiting class.

Bowers had a team-high five catches for 121 yards and two scores, including a 78-yarder, against South Carolina last week. He also scored the game's first touchdown on a 5-yard reverse run. He was named SEC Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts. Check out his 75-yard touchdown run against Kent State in the video below.

"I don't even have his phone number, "Kirby Smart stated following the South Carolina game. "I could tell he was quick as he ran down the field. The thing about Brock that is difficult to quantify is the amount of attention he attracts. You know, 121 yards, whatever that is. However, on three or four of Brock's plays, there were people blocking down the field — great blocking down the field. 

"So, Darnell Washington pins a man on one of the small crack screens we run." And the hole, people, holes are formed by displacement rather than obstruction. Darnell moves people. So, I'm sure Brock would be the first to tell you that his success is due to a lot of perimeter and other touches that other people make tremendous blocks for. Marcus Rosemy possessed two or three. 

The selflessness of this bunch — on that play in front of the end zone, nobody was blocking for him because it was a one-of-a-kind grab. And the play-action run after the catch. But, once again, the run set up his play-action move in the second half.

"You know, if you run the ball two or three times, those safeties come down and he runs by you. But he's a unique player. I'm not sure I've ever met somebody who works as hard in practice as he and Darnell do."
