Projecting the Baker offense

Published: Friday, May 30, 2014 at 05:35 PM.

Beck started every game last year and threw for more than 1,000 yards. Beck, a high jumper on the track team, has the athleticism needed to excel in the spread offense and the arm to get the ball down the field to open receivers.

Beck is solidly entrenched as the starting quarterback, but Brunson has other options if he’s unable to play.

Austin Davis, a rugged runner with a strong arm, can do many of the things Beck does, and the Gators won’t miss a beat with Davis in the shotgun attack.

The third option at quarterback is rising senior David Oglesby. Oglesby, the backup quarterback last year, also plays receiver and will be a key contributor on the field at several positions on both sides of the football.

Running back

Austin Martin enters the summer as the man to beat to replace Thomas at tailback. Martin, a two-year starter at outside linebacker on defense, Thomas' backup, showed he is more than capable of carrying the larger share of the load.

When Martin needs a breather, Davis will have a chance to carry the football. Tristan Carroll also will see playing time at tailback.
