Former Georgia QB D’Wan Mathis changes positions

·1 min read

D’Wan Mathis was named the opening game starter at quarterback for the Temple Owls for the second consecutive season to begin the 2022 college football season. However, Mathis, a Georgia transfer, is changing positions for the Owls.

D’Wan Mathis is now practicing at wide receiver. Mathis got off to a slow start to begin the 2022 season. Over Mathis’ first two games he went 14 of 29 for 125 passing yards and did not have a touchdown or interception.

Kurt Warner’s son, E.J. Warner, has impressed in the last two games. Warner has thrown for 388 passing yards, three touchdowns and one interception.

Mathis threw for 1,223 yards, six touchdowns, and four interceptions in 2021 for Temple.

Mathis was named the opening day starter at quarterback for three consecutive seasons. He was named Georgia’s starting quarterback ahead of the 2020 college football season, but lost his job to Stetson Bennett in his first career start against Arkansas. Mathis is a former four-star recruit from Oak Park High School in Oak Park, Michigan.
