    We all saw who put on the green jacket as this year's Masters Tournament winner. That was former Georgia Bulldog Bubba Watson. What you might not have noticed was the SEC golfer from right up the road that took home some impressive hardware of his own.

Knoxville, Tn - Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs' teammates say he isn't a typical freshman.
    
Now Dobbs has a chance to prove it.
    
Dobbs will make his first career start while trying to lead Tennessee (4-4, 1-3 SEC) to its first road win over a ranked opponent since 2006 on Saturday when the Volunteers visit No. 10 Missouri (7-1, 3-1). Dobbs replaces junior Justin Worley, who is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery this week on his injured right thumb.
    
The Vols have marveled at the poise and maturity Dobbs has shown since arriving on campus.
    
Dobbs, a graduate of Alpharetta (Ga.) High School, won the Watkins Award given annually by the National Alliance of African-American Athletes to a high school senior who combines academic and athletic excellence. He plans to major in aerospace engineering.
