NEW ORLEANS — Jake Fromm has had an up-and-down and sometimes emotional junior season at Georgia.
But on Tuesday, it was Fromm triggering some emotion, driving ESPN reporter Holly Rowe to tears with his positive outlook amid adversity.
For the New Year, let’s all be a shining light in this world like @FrommJake
Honestly brought me to tears today with his positive, lovely spirit. Many blessings to this young man. @GeorgiaFootball should be so proud to have him leading this team. pic.twitter.com/GOGB8E5anR

Fromm has carried a positive attitude through the season.
Two days earlier, DawgNation asked Fromm how he maintained such a polite demeanor amid controversy and difficult questions.
“I kind of have strength in knowing that Christ is not going to put me in any position that I can’t handle,” Fromm said at the Sugar Bowl Media Day.
“I know I’m prepared and well-armored for anything I walk into. This isn’t any different.”
Fromm and the No. 5-ranked Bulldogs play No. 7 Baylor at 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday in the Sugar Bowl.
Fromm has been the face of the program since his freshman season, helping to lead a veteran Georgia team to the 2017 College Football Playoff Championship Game.
His role has evolved from there, and his good works have extended outside the program. Fromm was named to the Allstate AFCA Good Works team this season.
SEC legend Tim Tebow has been a fan of Fromm’s since his freshman season, often advocating Fromm get more control of the Bulldogs’ offense.
