Georgia QB Mason in line to see first snaps since 2011

Georgia backup quarterback Hutson Mason will turn 22 on Friday.

A day later, he could get into his first game since the 2011 SEC championship loss to LSU.

“It has been a long time,” senior quarterback Aaron Murray said. “I always joke with him that I want to come back next year after you get hit for an entire game and just see how much pain you’re in. I don’t even remember the last time he’s been hit. We were actually joking about this a few weeks ago. He hasn’t been hit in a while.”

Mason redshirted last season as a junior.

“He’s a backup starter, man, in my eyes,” receiver Rantavious Wooten said. “The guy definitely can play anywhere else and start. Just unfortunate for him in the position he’s in, it’s never a good thing to sub out and switch quarterbacks like that and just play around with your quarterbacks. You want to have a solidified quarterbacks and that’s been Murray for four seasons.”

Murray said Mason “is more than ready,” to play. “He’s been ready for a while.”
