GATORS PODCAST: Billy Napier’s Gators are moving in and moving up (Ep. 123)

·1 min read

It was a busy weekend for the Florida Gators. The long-awaited Heavener Football Training Center opened Sunday. The $85 million, Taj Mahal-like facility will level the playing field, enhance the player experience and maximize efficiency for Napier’s program. Maybe most important, the Heavener will bolster the Gators’ recruiting efforts as Napier and Co. continued to make inroads on the trail. Florida’s class landed three defensive linemen to push the 2023 class into the top 10. While the future appears bright, the Gators have plenty of work to do before a Sept. 3 visit from No. 7 Utah. The defense dominated Saturday’s scrimmage and put the Anthony Richardson-led attack on notice. Edgar and Mark lend perspective during the latest episode of Swamp Things.
