Pierce County’s own Stetson Bennett IV led the Georgia Bulldogs vs. Alabama in the NCAA National Football Championship Monday night winning the National Championship 33-18. Bennett was named the offensive player of the game after throwing two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Bennett’s hometown has cheered him on during the past week as area television stations and other media outlets have featured Blackshear in their coverage. Pierce County Schools observed Stetson Bennett IV Days last Friday and Monday in honor of the 2017 PCHS graduate. An event was held Friday morning at Bear Stadium. 

A special section celebrating Stetson Bennett IV and the Georgia Bulldogs is planned for the January 19 edition.
