However, his pending misdemeanor charges put a damper on his dreams as a conviction means a criminal record.

Becoming America's Top QB

Since winning the award for America's Top Quarterback, Bennett has been preparing for his professional career. He returned to Apex Sports in Fort Worth following his bail.

Turning Down Offers

The star quarterback is already fielding offers from top teams and turned down the opportunity to play in the Senior Bowl.

Top Pick For NFL Drafts

Top analysts including ESPN's Mel Kiper believe the Quarterback would make the third round of the April draft.

Leading His Team To Victory

Per TMZ Sports, Bennett led his team to a perfect 15-0 season victory hence the invitation to play at the Senior Bowl. However, he's determined to go pro and can't do that if he's distracted with the smaller league.

Message To The NFL

During his post-NFL championship interview, Bennett said he wants future teams to know he's a hard worker who's "pretty good at football."

Not Worried About The Draft

At that point, Bennett focused on winning his National Championship and told the reporters that the NFL draft would take care of itself when the time came.

Getting Ready For Success

Despite his aloof demeanor, Bennett is putting in the work in preparation for the call that'll change his life.
