GAINESVILLE, Fla. Jeff Driskel prefers life on the move.
He doesnt know any other way after growing up in a Navy family.
He definitely is not a video-game kid. Hes not a big TV watcher, said Mary Driskel, Jeffs mom. Hes always active, always wanting to do something.
Driskels need for movement holds true whether he is on the field as the Gators dual-threat quarterback or trying to decide how to spend those few rare days of freedom during the season.
Should he take off running or wait for a receiver to come open?With no practice or classes, should he go fishing?What about skeet shooting with some of his teammates?
Take last weekend for example. The Gators were off following perhaps the most significant month of Driskels young life. In a span of four weeks, the 19-year-old sophomore emerged from the heat of a quarterback battle to being called the SECs breakout player of the year by CBS analyst Gary Danielson, who is working Floridas game Saturday against No. 4-ranked LSU.
