Gators off to a strong start

Brunson continued to stress the importance of having a physical team as the Gators prepare to practice in pads for the first time on Monday. He said he wants to see his players come off the ball with good pad level (to gain leverage), to beat the opposition to the first punch and for them to continue moving and driving their feet after making the first contact so they can win the line of scrimmage.

One of the more interesting things to watch this spring will be the battle between Jon Beck and Ben Crowson for the starting quarterback job.

Brunson said in the end both players will see action at quarterback in the fall and it’s nice to have two talented players at the key position on the field.

“Both of those quarterbacks are very capable of running our offense and we are going to keep working both of them,” Brunson said. “And again, Ben is going to see some time on defense so it’s going to be a very good situation to have two guys that can do what those two guys can do.”
