When Aaron Murray announced he would return for his senior season, most fans cheered because they felt Murray provided them a better opportunity to get back to the SEC Championship Game.
However, after the spring game, fans can be confident in the abilities of backup quarterback Hutson Mason.
For those who don’t know about Mason, he holds the Georgia high school record for passing yards in a season (4,560).
In the spring game, he made the right reads and displayed good accuracy. Mason completed 16 of 27 passes for 191 yards and one touchdown.
He did have one interception on a pass he should have thrown away, but that was his only real mistake on the day.
While nobody is hoping for Murray to get injured, Mason can fill in at a high level, lessening the worry every time Murray gets hit.
