Gator Football Line of Scrimmage Making Adjustments

The Florida Gator Football team is in full swing with the second week of Spring practice wrapping up. Almost every part of the team is a little different this season, but the offensive and defensive line is under major reconstruction. As for the offensive line, they are looking to improve their depth this Spring after having a rough season in 2015 with a lack of bodies on the line. In the 2015 season, the O-Line was significantly impacted by injuries as well as departures to the NFL. Despite the troubles on the O-Line, the team still finished with ten wins on the season and became SEC East champs. However, this is a new season, and the offensive line is looking stronger then ever. Redshirt Junior offensive linemen Cameron Dillard says anything beats the seven linemen the Gators had last season.

On the defensive side of the ball, young players are looking to fill the hole of standout Jonathan Bullard who departed for the NFL. Redshirt junior Caleb Brantley is someone that can fill this hole. Bullard, who was the defensive captain on the line, led the Gators with 17.5 tackles for a loss and 6.5 sacks. However, Brantley tied for third on the team in sacks with 3. Caleb Brantley says he is working hard every day to improve his game and be a great leader. Brantley says ” I feel like I am the best defensive lineman in the country, so I am going out and trying to prove it.”

The offensive and defensive linemen will be able to showcase their talents in the Swamp at the spring game, which will take place on April 8th.
