Breaking down the Gators' offense

"I thought we had a good spring," he said. "We went about three and a half weeks there and I felt like our guys got better each week. At the end we played about as good as we could play in what we tried to do against Chipley.

"We will be back in the conditioning mode and the strength-building mode starting on the 17th. The one thing we've got to do over the rest of the summer is get the rest of our package in. At the same time, we've got to get into some type of game shape because we are going to be tested in week one when we host Graceville."


Sophomore Jon Beck and senior Ben Crowson will battle for the starting quarterback spot and will probably share time under center. Brunson will be comfortable with either player in the game.

"Jon Beck and Ben Crowson are both going to be very good players and we are going to use both of them," Brunson said. "Jon brings youth, and he's got three more years in the program. He's got a very live arm.

"Ben's probably got a little more experience, as far as being in varsity games. Ben's a little more shifty. He's an option-type quarterback and also can throw."

Both quarterbacks are great athletes with useful skill sets, Brunson said.
