On Saturday, more than a few Florida Gators will be playing their last college football games in The Swamp. And as is always the case, Senior Day is sure to shake some tears loose.

But in the run-up to this Saturday’s matchup with Florida State — which seems like it might turn into a three-hour celebration, unless the Seminoles play well above their standards for their season to date — Florida’s program has done something extra special for these seniors, producing individual videos chronicling — and, importantly, thanking them for — their stints as Gators.

They’re great viewing, especially on Thanksgiving, and the players’ responses to them have been moving in their own right. And it should go without saying that Florida’s setting a standard for farewells to seniors that it should match every year.
