Gator Football Update!

Some news from around the Gator football office.

Our football players just recently completed their seven week off-season conditioning program and are undergoing strength and speed testing this week. Our players made some good strides in the weight room and they are looking forward to starting spring practice on March 16th. The Gator football team got some good news when we recently learned long snapper Casey Griffith has been granted an additional year of eligibility by the NCAA. Casey is a key ingredient to our special teams and I respect his hard work and attitude and it will be great to have him back for another year.

Our practice dates have been released and will be updated next week with tentative times and locations. If you plan on coming to practice, please check the website daily as times and locations could change.

When we open spring practice you will see some changes on the field. We plan on moving Mo Mitchell back to the offensive line. Mo did a great job on the defensive side of the ball, but we feel much better about the defensive tackle position than we did a year ago and we have some spots to shore up with the departure of Shannon Snell and Max Starks. Joe Cohen has asked to move to the defensive side of the ball. Joe is a tremendous athlete who is above 270 pounds right now and it will be good to see him on the field.

Travis Harris will also move from defensive end to the strong side linebacker. Travis plays with an unbelievable motor and he will provide some depth and energy to the linebacking spot. There are also no plans to move Gavin Dickey from the quarterback spot. Gavin is playing with the baseball team right now and it has been a great experience for him.

Well, I had a really bad cold today, but I managed to PR in the weight throw hitting 66'0". It felt okay, but I know I've got plenty more! Coach wanted me to throw the shot... but I passed and so did Kim. Candice is enjoying a well-earned visit home to Trinidad.

Here's my Bronze shot medal from the SEC & my sister Karla's drawing of me and my sisters! A Gator Piñata?
