Delance and Gouraige Prepare for Spring game While Battling It out for the O-Line Position

The Florida Gators had quite a 2018 season with a new head coach, Dan Mullen, and his staff.

Gators Spring Season

Gators strong Offensive Line in the 2018 season helped lead the Gators to their many different achievements within a short period of time.

This improvement had a lot to do with the new coaching staff. The Gators team and staff have made such a turn around with the University of Florida football program that they turned out with a winning season and won the Chic-fil-A Peach Bowl.

As the Spring moves along, the Gators continue to re-build their already strong team by having a great recruiting class come in. These recruits will continue to come in during the summer, but with losing many key players to the roster, these additions are important. This uncertainty at the O-Line position brings out a competitive spirit within the team to compete for a starting spot.

O-line Men Lost

SR- Martez Ivey,

JR- Jawaan Taylor,

SR- Fred Johnson

RedShirt SR- Kavaris Harkless

SR-Tyler Jordan

Redshirt JR- Nick Villano

The Gators are losing 4 out 5 starters in the O-Line position. A couple of those Gators have been playing since their freshman year and started in the majority of the games since their career started. Martez Ivey, Jawaan Taylor, Fred Johnson, and Tyler Jordan have a had a big impact with the teams rebuilding process of last year, but will be key leaders leaving the team upon graduation.

Next Up

With the spring game only four days away, Gator fans will be able to get a glimpse of who has been competing for that starting O-Line spot. A few Gators who have the potential of landing these spots after returning for next year’s season are Jean Delance and Richard Gouraige.

Jean Delance who is a redshirt Junior appeared in four games for the Gators as a reserved offensive lineman. He transferred to the Gator Program in 2017, but was out for a season due to transfer regulations. He made his debut with the Gators in 2018 in the first regular season game.

” not being on the field made was  hard  but made me way more determined wanting to play and having a set back was hard but a set me back in a good way more made me focus more on school and football “

Richard Gouraige who is a redshirt freshman only participated in two games for the Gators during his freshman year. Coming out of high school he was a 4-star recruit looking to reach his full potential.

Gouraige had this to say about fighting for the starting position.
