Blog: Georgia’s Mason 1 of 5 SEC QBs on O’Brien watch list

Preseason award watch lists sometimes seem all-inclusive with a boatload of names showing up.

The Davey O’Brien Award list for nation’s top quarterback released Wednesday includes a relatively small 39 names.

Georgia’s Hutson Mason is one of them.

Mason, a fifth-year senior, is entering his first full season as the Bulldogs’ starter.

He started two games last season after stepping in for an injured Aaron Murray against Kentucky in the Bulldogs’ home finale.

Mason is one of five SEC quarterbacks on the list, along with Florida’s Jeff Driskel, Auburn’s Nick Marshall, Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott and Ole Miss’ Bo Wallace.
