Schedule set for Florida's SEC Network Takeover: The network's programming goes all-Gator on Monday, July 25th. It appears to be pretty well-rounded coverage, airing events and coverage for gymnastics, softball, women's basketball, baseball, track and field, soccer, football, and men's basketball. You can relive the majesty of 2015 Ole Miss at Florida at 1:30 p.m. (I might still have this on my DVR and might still put it on occasionally just for fun) and also watch Florida's 2006 and 2007 basketball championships back-to-back starting at 5:30 p.m. Another treat - the 1997 Sugar Bowl airs at 8:30 p.m. (Daniel Apple, Florida Gators)
Jarrad Davis becoming leader for Florida football: The senior linebacker, who decided to return for his senior season with the Gators rather than enter the NFL Draft, has frequently been cited as one of the hardest workers on the team and was the voice of the Gators at SEC Media Days. (Zach Abolverdi, SEC Country)
Davis is also being recognized for his work with the community off of the field. He is on the watch list for the Wuerffel Trophy, which is presented to college football's top community servant. Davis has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, Shands Hospital, Boys & Girls Club, and Williams Elementary School in Gainesville. He is one of the nominees for the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, which recognizes a group of college football players who have made a commitment to service and enriching the lives of others.
