Saturday May 4, 2013Six Gator Football Players Receive Diplomas Over Weekend

Gainesville, Fla.

Six members of the Gator football team were among the 57 University of Florida student-athletes that received their diplomas today in commencement ceremonies held in the Stephen C. O’Connell Center on the UF campus.

 

Stephen Alli (Andover, N.H.), Tim Clark (Wellborn, Fla.), Christopher Guido (Altamonte Springs, Fla.), Kedric Johnson (Palmetto, Fla.), Scott Peek (Tampa, Fla.) and Jesse Schmitt (Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.) received their undergraduate degrees this afternoon to cap their senior seasons.

 

This year’s senior class made quite the impact on the 2012 football season after not only a four-game turnaround from a season ago to go 11-1 in the regular season, but also to go undefeated at home for just the third time in school history (2006, 2009).

 

Among the Gator graduates are Cameron Martin and Holly King, both who were recognized among the University of Florida’s six Outstanding Graduating Senior Leaders at this weekend’s commencement. Martin is a recipient of a 2013 NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship and also received a $5,000 scholarship as a nominee for the 2013 Brad Davis SEC Community Service award. Softball’s Kelsey Horton is a finalist for the 2013 Senior CLASS Award and also earned a $5,000 scholarship as UF’s female nominee for the 2013 Brad Davis SEC Community Service award. Two swimmers - Sarra Lajnef (Tunisia) and Rodion Davelaar (Netherlands Antilles) represented their nation in Olympic action. Lajnef is graduating summa cum laude.

 

Six graduates were conference players of the year including two last fall – Chloe Mann (2012 SEC Volleyball Player of the Year) and King (2012 SEC Soccer Defensive). Earlier this week, four Gator seniors swept the American Lacrosse Conference position player of the year awards - Kitty Cullen (2011 Player of the Year; 2013 Offensive), Sam Farrell (2013 Defensive), Brittany Dashiell (2013 Midfielder) and Mikey Meagher (2013 Goalie).

 

A total of 41 graduates were part of Southeastern Conference Championship teams during their Gator careers and 45 earned Academic All-SEC honors.
