Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett may never know the allure of a BlackBerry phone, but there was something about an ordinary flip phone he thought would help him out a bit.
Bennett revealed Saturday in his media availability two days before the national championship game against Alabama he bought the relic from the 2000s over the summer to help him try to stop aimlessly using his smartphone.

“Apparently a lot of old people still use them. I used to spend an hour on my phone every day, doing what? Nothing, nothing that was going to help me remember what I just did. And I’ve thought about this before, I’ve thought about it for years. I was like, I’ve got all this stuff to do, all this important stuff. Let’s try not to let anything get in the way of that focus and go get a flip phone,” he said, via The Athletic.
