TUCSON, Ariz. – The moment he heard it pop, Georgia State senior quarterback Dan Ellington knew exactly what had happened to his right knee. He also knew that, if he had his way, he was going to power through it.

Ellington has started the past two seasons under center for Georgia State (7-5). Following a 2-10 campaign in 2018, Ellington has led the Panthers to the school’s third bowl game. His play (21 touchdown passes, 598 yards rushing) has been a big reason for the team’s turnaround.
