Profile on DeShawn Wynn

  • Strongest on the team in the squat at 600 lbs.
  • On his first carry at Reading, after transferring for his junior season, ran 80 yards for a touchdown. "He was so pumped up. It was the fastest I had seen a human being run in my life," Ken Minor, his high school coach said.
  • In a game vs. Finneytown H.S., DeShawn ran for 465 yards and seven touchdowns
  • Although he lived in Ohio, was a Gator fan
  • High school coach Ken Minor put together a highlight tape, sent to his brother Ed, who lives near Gainesville to hand deliver. Minor called a couple times before the coaches got to it, loved Wynn and offered.

What They Are Saying About DeShawn Wynn

 "More and more freshman running backs around the country are coming in and playing.  (Ohio State standout) Maurice Clarett and DeShawn were considered 1-2 from that area (Ohio).  That shows you what kind of talent DeShawn has." (March 29, 2003)

"Nothing DeShawn Wynn does surprises me.  DeShawn has a chance to be one of the greatest backs to ever play here.  You often here him being compared to Fred Taylor.  I think DeShawn is a great back and  a great addition to this offense.  I think you guys are just starting to see the beginnings of what he can do.  He can do it all.  He can make guys miss in the open field or he can run over you.  When teams watch that and see the different things that he can do, they don't know what to expect when he comes out there. To have a guy like DeShawn on the team is great.  Its another weapon." (September 9, 2003)
Ran Carthon, Former UF Running Back

“The 224-pound Wynn is an extremely talented prospect who could play a huge role this season after lighting it up in spring practices. Ran Carthon is listed as Florida's starter, but that won't last long. At the very least, Wynn will be starter No. 1A after showing a breathtaking combination of speed and power. His emergence turns this decent corps of Gator running backs into something special.” (July 13, 2003)
CBSSportsline.com

"DeShawn has all of it together.  He’s got moves, he can run inside, outside.  He can run over you, past you. He's the complete package." (July 10, 2003)
Brian Crum, UF Linebacker

"DeShawn Wynn is beginning to establish himself as one of the best backs in the Southeastern Conference." (September 17, 2003)
Michael DiRocco, Jacksonville Times-Union

"The things those two guys (Wynn and Fason) come out and do on a daily basis are unbelievable.  Sometimes one looks faster, and sometimes the other one.  I just know when they get into the open field, they're hard to catch." (April 10, 2003)
Gavin Dickey, UF Quarterback

"He's a load. He's a great back. He's just hard to bring down. I think it's his lower body strength. He keeps his legs driving all the time." (September 17, 2003)
Matt Farrior, Former UF Linebacker

"He's the quiet type.  He's just bullish-headed and tries to run everyone over." (July 10, 2003)

"I call DeShawn 'Baby Fred.' I'm from Jacksonville and I know Fred Taylor. They both have a great size-speed combination and make plays." (September 15, 2003)
Ciatrick Fason, Former UF Running Back

"The good ones aren't worried about competition.  Competition brings out the best in them.  But he has great size.  He's thick and durable.  He has great speed.  He can make people miss or he can run over them.  And he has good vision." (August 7, 2002)

"He's The Real Deal, no doubt about it.  He has great speed, is strong, powerful, can make you miss or run over you.  I'm excited about what he brings to the table.  DeShawn's got a different personality than the rest of those guys.  He's kind of quiet, laid-back a little but he's very confident in what he does.  He knows his abilities."  (March 6, 2003)
Larry Fedora, Former UF Offensive Coordinator

"Wynn is the type of bruising back that never seems to be brought back down by the first hit." (April 10, 2003)

“DeShawn Wynn will be considered one of the best running backs to ever play for Florida by the time his career is over, and he will have a long NFL career, baring injury.  He just has that look.” (May 25, 2003)
JL Kirby, GatorBait Magazine

"I've had a chance to work with some pretty good tailbacks and he ranks up there with all of them." (April 13, 2003)

"DeShawn probably is the most athletic of the three (Fason, Wynn, Walker).  He has tremendous balance, power and speed." (March 29, 2003)

"This is probably the most talented group of tailbacks I've been associated with.  I've got four guys who, when given the opportunity, can make plays." (March 29, 2003)

"I say it all the time, he has great body control, then he has the ability to burst. He has a tremendous amount of acceleration, he catches the ball well and he's a low center of gravity runner that allows him to break a lot of tackles. So when you combine all those athletic skills and the fact that he's a real competitive and an aggressive guy, I think he makes a total, complete back." (September 17, 2003)
Mike Locksley, Former UF Running Backs coach

"DeShawn has incredible ability. Besides his explosiveness and his speed and strength, he has wonderful field vision. Everything kind of slows down for him and he is able to pick the right holes. What he's done is just the tip of the iceberg of what he is capable of doing." (September 17, 2003)
Ken Minor, Reading HS coach

"We were watching film and I said, 'Man, turn that thing off, we don't need to see any more of that guy.' He was tough to tackle every time he touched the ball. He's as good as I've seen in awhile." (September 17, 2003)
Larry Slade, Tennessee secondary coach

"He made the biggest impact of any player on the roster.  What a terrific runner.  This guy is fast, strong, elusive, tough and a threat to go the distance when he gets into the open field.  He looks like a budding star." (April 21, 2003)

"Watch out for Wynn.  All of UF's running backs are powerfully built and fast, but he has that indefinable "it" factor.  On second thought, maybe it is definable.  He picks his holes well, explodes through them and is a load to tackle on the open field, simply looking natural with the ball in his hands." (August 28, 2003)
Guerry Smith, GatorBait

"DeShawn's a big strong guy, a fast guy.  He runs low, he's got power.  He gives us a nice stable of running backs." (April 3, 2003)

"I don't know what it is about DeShawn Wynn. He has a little explosion.  He has a knack.  He runs extremely well, he's a big, strong guy.  He can carry the football.  He really has a chance to be a big-play back for us." (April 21, 2003)

"He's got a little special something.  He's got a gear, and he's strong.  He's got an explosion." (April 10, 2003)

"He's a guy who is very, very talented. As he learns more and more he is going to become better and better. And the better he becomes and the more we want to get the ball in his hands." (September 17, 2003)
Ron Zook, Former UF Head Coach

“DeSwhawn was probably misunderstood. I don’t see any attitude problem. These guys are giving me everything I’m asking them to do right now.”
Stan Drayton, UF Running Backs Coach

“DeShawn does have tremendous speed and size and great quickness. He’s worked on becoming a mentally, physically tough player. That is what makes you great. There are very few great players who have been mentally and physically soft, especially at running back. If you look at the Hall of Fame, Walter Payton certainly wasn’t a five-star recruit coming out of high school, but he had an awful lot of heart and mental and physical toughness and ended up being successful. That part of it is what people don’t always see. DeShawn had the measurables, s if we get him pushed over the edge on the intangibles, he can break the long runs, he can make someone miss and he can run somebody over.” (July 2006)
Dan Mullen, UF Offensive Coordinator

“DeShawn has got a long way to go, and right now DeShawn realizes that. That’s half the battle, realize that you’re not quite there yet. You still have to come and work here every single day. You have to give it up from start to finish. He’s trying to learn to do that.” (July 2006)
Stan Drayton, UF Running Backs Coach

“DeShawn Wynn, in the springtime, did not miss one practice, he played hurt and played through a lot of adversity. He has come out this year and he has played at a tempo that I have never seen him practice at. He is doing everything I ask, without any backtalk whatsoever.” (8/14/06)
Stan Drayton, UF Running Backs Coach

“DeShawn has a chance to be one of the greatest backs to ever play here. You often hear him being compared to Fred Taylor. I think DeShawn is a great back and a great addition to this offense. I think you guys are just starting to see the beginnings of what he can do.” (8/14/06)
Ran Carthon, former Florida running back

"From the time I've been here to this point right now, DeShawn Wynn is a different person," said Gators running backs coach Stan Drayton, who came in with head coach Urban Meyer in 2005. "He's come out this year, and he's playing at a tempo I've never seen him practice at. He's doing everything that I asked without any back talk whatsoever, and he's allowing me to coach him the way I need to coach him to get him to where he needs to be. He's made drastic improvement." (8/28/06)
Stan Drayton, UF Running Backs Coach

“The tailback, DeShawn Wynn, running for 100 yards, that doesn’t happen very often against that defense (Tennessee). It’s time he became a tailback, and he did. He’s a tailback at the University of Florida. I’ll let you know right now, he’s starting against Kentucky next week. (9/16/06)
Urban Meyer, UF Head Coach

"We were going to give it to him, and it's time he became the tailback - and he did. He's the tailback at the University of Florida." (9/18/06)
Urban Meyer, UF Head Coach

"He's a hard worker. He's a steady guy, and he's going to get those yards that you need. When we have a back that carries the ball like he does, that can get 25-30 carries a game, it takes a lot of pressure off the passing game...DeShawn Wynn is a great running back." (9/18/06)
Chris Leak, UF Quarterback

"He said what was on his mind," Drayton said. "He wanted the football. It wasn't for a selfish reason at all. That was something we haven't seen from DeShawn Wynn. We've been waiting for that from those guys, for somebody to step up." (11/01/06)
Stan Drayton, UF Running Backs Coach
