Gators Fan Day on Saturday drew a big crowd at the O'Connell Center.
Hey folks, hope everyone is having a good weekend. I met several of you at Gators Fan Day on Saturday and would like to say thanks for stopping by the GatorZone.com table at the O'Connell Center.
Meanwhile, the Gators held their second open practice of fall camp on Saturday at The Swamp. They have two more open practices this week: Monday and Tuesday (each scheduled to start at 12:21 p.m.).
Check out GatorZone later today for a feature story on the defensive line tandem of Dante Fowler Jr. and Jonathan Bullard. Also, on Monday I'll have a look at sophomore offensive lineman D.J. Humphries, considered one of the top left tackle prospects in the nation.
I'll tell you how Humphries went from someone who resisted the move in high school to someone who now realizes what playing left tackle could mean to his future.
