This position became a feature of the Gators offense this decade. Between the athleticism of Ben Troupe, the potential of Cornelius Ingram and the hands of Aaron Hernandez, Florida always had very good players at tight end.
Ben Troupe (2000-2003): 2003 Second Team AP All-American. 2003 First Team AP, Coaches All-SEC. Beloved for his ability to hurdle tacklers. 64 catches, 958 yards, 7 touchdowns.
Cornelius Ingram (2005-2007): 2007 Second Team AP, Coaches All-SEC. Played only two seasons as tight end after moving from quarterback to start the 2006 season. 64 catches, 888 yards (896 total yards), 8 touchdowns.
Aaron Hernandez (2007-2009): 2009 First Team AP All-American. 2009 First Team AP, Coaches All-SEC. 2009 Mackey Award for best tight end; the first Gator to win the award. 102 catches, 1271 yards (1286 total yards), 11 touchdowns.
