PLAYERS: Trenton Brown
TEAMS: Florida Gators
Being dwarfed by another human is a new feeling in the Florida offensive line meeting room. It doesn’t happen very often, especially with 10 300-pounders in the room. Then entered junior college transfer Trenton Brown. The 6-8, 363-pound offensive lineman brings girth at offensive tackle and has become one of the most talked about players throughout fall camp by players on both sides of the ball.

At 6-8, tackle Trenton Brown a big deal for Gators

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Junior-college transfer Trenton Brown isn't the type to walk into a room and take over the conversation. "He is kind of quiet, but he's slowly opening up to us, which we really appreciate," senior center Jon Harrison said Thursday. While Brown might not say much, the conversation has slowly turned toward the 6-foot-8, 361-pound mountain midway...

Florida's D.J. Durkin pleased at youth movement's progress

GAINESVILLE, Fla. You can't blame him if once in a while, first-year Gators defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin takes a look at last year's defense, grasps his chin as he studies the numbers, and then shakes his head. A lot of tackles, sacks and interceptions have left The Swamp.

Notebook: Morrison brings energy to practice

Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison returned to practice last Thursday, and whether it was a coincidence or not, the Gators put together one of their best practices on the day the sophomore linebacker returned. The Florida coaching staff continues to weigh whether or not to decrease his two-game suspension, but they’re seeing the energy he’s bringing to the practice field this fall.

Thursday Practice: In-Depth Look at Linemen

The Florida Gators opened practice for the first time in the fall for quite some time and there was a lot to behold before this 2013 season starts. Thursday it was warm and muggy, just like the coaching staff likes it to get ready for two noon type games to open the season. Here is my take on what we saw from the linemen Thursday.

One-armed basketball star Zach Hodskins offered walk-on spot at Florida

Zach Hodskins has one of the smoothest basketball strokes you will ever see. But it’s not his incredibly accurate shot that has heads turning across the nation. It’s the fact that Hodskins can shoot like that with only one arm. Earlier this month, the University of Florida and head coach Billy Donovan offered Hodskins a […]
