Stetson Bennett trolls Alabama to announce latest NIL deal
Stetson Bennett last week worked a shift as an employee at a Raising Cane’s restaurant in Athens, and now the Georgia quarterback has announced a new partnership for another name, image and likeness deal.
Bennett tweeted that he’s a “Caniac Ambassador” and shared a picture on social media of him working the drive thru with the statement, “That’ll be $33.18,” an obvious reference to the national championship score over Alabama. Bennett previously had a deal with Great Clips, which he posted about before and after the national championship.
Last week he took orders, talked with customers and worked alongside other employees, who jokingly asked him if he was more nervous to do that job than play quarterback in the national title game. Bennett took selfies with customers, who appeared shocked to see him only days after he passes for 224 yards and 2 touchdowns in the 33-18 win over the Crimson Tide in Lucas Oil Stadium.
Bennett is a bona fide Georgia legend now after delivering huge plays in the national championship, including a touchdown pass to Adonai Mitchell on a 40-yard play to give Georgia a 19-18 lead with 8:09 left and then he found Brock Bowers for a 15-yard TD on a screen to put the Bulldogs up by 8 points with 3:33 left. Those plays helped overcome a seemingly costly fumble, which led to an Alabama touchdown.
