  • 2023 three-star offensive line target Caden Jones

  • 2023 PWO receiver Jackson Wade

It was a great team win. Everyone did their job. Jaydon Hill was a standout with his pick-six and interception. He was a huge help to the defense.”

  • Four-star defensive tackle target Kayden McDonald

“It was a good game. It felt like home. I could see myself out there. The highlight was being in the new facility. The coach’s message was, ‘We need you in the Swamp.'”


  • 2024 kicker target Bobby Engstler

“I think it was a great team win! It was very competitive and the highlight of the game for me had to be the atmosphere once again!”

  • 2023 PWO safety Ahman Covington

“I think it was great a win. It was special also because it was our first SEC win of the season, so that played a major part in it as well. My favorite highlight was Jaydon Hill with the pick six, but ovarall defense played great.”

  • 2024 four-star linebacker target Andrew Hines

“It was a great win today. The highlight was in the fourth quarter, how the Gators kept fighting and the fans kept getting louder and louder.”

  • 2025 quarterback target Tramell Jones

“It was a great bounce-back win for them. I loved how they used the run to open up the pass. It was a different kind of atmosphere in the Swamp!”

  • 2024 defensive line target Elyjah Thurmon

“The win over Missouri today was a good one. In the first half, the offense left a lot more points on the field than what they had on the board. The highlight for me was the pick six in the first quarter.”

  • 2024 three-star defensive back Tevis Metcalf

“I thought it was a great game. I loved how the defense was applying pressure. The fans highlighted the game for me today with their spirit.”

  • 2023 three-star receiver commit Tyree Patterson

“I like how they got the stop towards the end of the game, which allowed them [Florida] to take a knee and win the game. I didn’t watch the whole game, but I watched most of the fourth quarter. But, it was a great game.”
