Mason attended Lassiter High School in Marietta. As a senior, he threw for a Georgia high school record 4,560 yards and 54 touchdowns and was the state’s Gatorade Football Player of the Year. In his two years as starter he threw for 8,265 yards and 85 touchdowns.
As a true freshman at the University of Georgia in 2010, Mason played in four games as a backup quarterback to Aaron Murray. He passed for 102 yards and had one touchdown. As a sophomore in 2011, he again was the backup to Murray, passing for 254 yards and two touchdowns. In 2012, he redshirted so that he could have another year of eligibility. Mason returned in 2013 as the backup to Murray. After Murray tore his ACL, Mason took over as Georgia’s starting quarterback and made his first career start in a win over rival Georgia Tech. He finished the game 22 of 36 for 299 yards and two touchdowns. Mason also started the 2014 Gator Bowl, passing for 320 yards with one touchdown. Overall, he appeared in five games, going 67 of 110 for 968 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions. In 2014, he took over as Georgia’s starting quarterback after Murray graduated. He started all 13 games, completing 188 of 277 for 2,167 yards, 21 touchdowns, and four interceptions. Hutson singed with the Washington Redskins after his collegiate career and then played two years in the CFL with the Saskatchewan Rough Riders and the Calgary Stampeders.
Transitioning into life after football, Hutson is now calling college football games with ESPN 3 and spending time with his passion as the Founder of “The Huddle,” a support group for men in the Atlanta area, who are foster or adopting fathers. Hutson himself grew up in a foster care home as a birth child. Hutson, his wife Catherine and their beagle, Denver live in Dunwoody, Georgia. He loves being outdoors, hunting and working at 680 The Fan!
