WR TJ Abrams in non contact jersey among three takeaways from Florida football spring practice


Florida football held its ninth practice of the spring on Tuesday afternoon at the Sanders Practice Fields.

In all, the Florida Gators will hold 15 practices leading up to the Orange and Blue game on April 13.

The Gators held their first scrimmage Saturday, and head coach Billy Napier praised the game management of freshman QB DJ Lagway, noted that Florida’s defense showed more and got the better of the offense, and proclaimed that UF’s offensive line is creating good chemistry and continuity.

“We’ve got a group of veteran players that are doing a good job kind of setting the tone and being a really good example, and then I see the young players, some of which were here last year, and some of which we just got here, are continuing to make progress,” Napier said. “So I do think that I’ve been pleased with what I see.”
