Although heavy rainfall made it difficult, the Florida Gator football team was still able to hold practice Monday night. The team continues to work hard during fall camp as the start of the regular season is less than two weeks away. Monday night’s practice was the final one before the team’s third scrimmage of camp on Tuesday. Florida redshirt senior tight end Omarius Hines says Tuesday’s scrimmage will be very important for the team as a whole.
Florida head coach Will Muschamp said Saturday that Tuesday’s scrimmage will have implications on who will get more reps at various positions heading into the final two weeks of camp before the season starts September 1st against Bowling Green. Gator defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd says all the players know they have to fight for their position.
After Tuesday’s practice and scrimmage the team will be off on Wednesday for the start of classes. They will return to the practice field on Thursday to begin preparation for their opening game against Bowling Green.
