        Head Coach Billy Napier on moving into the new James W. “Bill’ Heavener Football Training Center

        “We are excited about moving in the [James W. “Bill”] Heavener [Football Training] Center. Sunday will be our first opportunity as an organization to move in there and we started that process incrementally this week. A lot of time, energy and certainly investment from a lot of our supporters have made it to really improving our facility. Everyone wants to talk about recruiting when it comes to the facility but I think it’s more important to our player experience. It screams commitment and certainly the efficiency of how we’re going to be able to improve as an organization. Time is of the essence and I think the new facility is going to create more efficiency for everyone involved.”

        Athletics Director Scott Stricklin on the new James W. “Bill” Heavener Football Training Center

        “The Heavener Training Center will be a special home facility for the University of Florida’s football program and all of our student athletes, and it took support and dedication from a lot of individuals to make it a reality. It’s a tangible demonstration that we are committed to investing in our student-athletes and enhancing their experience at UF. Without our Boosters this project wouldn’t have been possible, and we’re grateful for the way they’ve helped this vision come to life. The individuals on campus, here in the UAA and within the crews that brought the Heavener Center to life are too many to name, but we appreciate the level of pride and care that went into planning and executing every detail.”
