Brock Bowers is putting together an outstanding junior campaign as No. 1 Georgia aims for a third consecutive national title.

But is the tight end worthy of the Heisman Trophy? That’s what a young Georgia fan believes as he asked Kirby Smart about campaigning for the dominant playmaker.

During Smart’s weekly radio show, he addressed the youngster’s question about the merit of Bowers capturing the sport’s top individual prize. Bowers has caught 37 receptions for 545 yards and 4 touchdowns this season.

“Well he already started it. I mean every game he plays his campaign is in living person. The way he plays and what he does,” Smart said. “The saddest part about Brock is he would never want those individual accolades because that’s just not who he is. It’s not in his personality.”

Smart added that Bowers typically rises to the occasion when the lights are the brightest. Only 2 tight ends have ever won the award but Smart absolutely believes Bowers is a viable candidate.

“I think the better he plays and the better he plays in big games. It’s sad in the history of what he’s done since being here since he’s played in so many big games, and he’s played so well in so many big games. They don’t count that backwards,” Smart said. “They only count it forward and they count what you do this year. So far he’s done a tremendous job for us. It’s really been an incredible year.”

Georgia will take on host Vanderbilt on Saturday (12 p.m. EST/CBS).
