This week keeps getting better for UGA starting quarterback Greyson Lambert.
After nearing perfection with a 24-of-25 passing performance in the 52-20 win over South Carolina, Lambert’s girlfriend, Adeline Kenerly, learned that she would be crowned Miss Georgia during a halftime ceremony when UGA faces Alabama on Oct. 3.
Kenerly finished as the runner-up to Betty Cantrell for Miss Georgia over the summer, but after Cantrell was named Miss America on Sept. 13, the title of Miss Georgia will now be granted to Kenerly.
Lambert is not the first SEC quarterback to date a Miss America contestant. Former Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron dated then-Miss Alabama Katherine Webb during the Crimson Tide’s National Championship victory over Notre Dame in 2013.
McCarron’s relationship seemed to be good fortune for the Crimson Tide, as it rolled over Notre Dame to the national title. Could there become a trend with quarterbacks dating pageant queens? Time will tell.
