BAKER — Now in his third season at Baker School, his alma mater, Gator head football coach Matt Brunson is convinced that familiarity between the coaches and players has never been better.

"They know how we are going to play and they are already talking about how we are fixing to get out there and get after it," Brunson said. "It's been fun to watch, and I think these guys have bought into what we are trying to do.

"I think the main thing is knowing how we are going to do it and what speed we are going to do it and what we expect of them. Now they understand all that."

‘Ready to get out here’

Brunson expects close to 75 players on the field today, when the Gators open spring football practice.

“We've been looking forward to this day," he said. "Our kids have been working hard in the weight room and I think they are ready to get out there and do some things.”

Baker enters the spring needing to fill a few holes in the lineup.
