“YES SIR!”: Florida’s CeCe Jefferson mic’d up is a delight

“It’s gon’ be a feast — I’m out here spinnin’. When have I ever started to spin?”

We can argue about whether Florida Gators defensive lineman CeCe Jefferson has lived up to his five-star billing in two years as a Gator that have been replete with flashes but short on lasting dominance. Entering his junior year, however, Jefferson appears to be growing into a leader and a menace on the defensive line — without having lost the joy so obvious in his smile.

Florida’s Friday delivery of a minute and a half of Jefferson enjoying the hell out of fall practice is wonderful proof of the latter bit.

If you don’t react to some triumph in your life with a resounding “YES SIR!” in the next couple of days, you will have missed out.

It appears this video is from an early Friday practice in The Swamp; Florida was set to hold its second scrimmage of the fall this afternoon as of this morning.

Be sure to stay tuned for the end of the video, too, for a bit of truth about how absorbing camp life can be.
