University of Florida holding tryouts for Kicker on Football team
So University of Florida student...ever have dreams of playing on the Gator Football team? Have you ever said "I can do kick a football better than that guy"?
Well, your opportunity is here.
The Gators are holding an open tryout Monday afternoon to find a new kicker. Florida coach Jim McElwain needs you. And needs you fast.
All Call for Kickers! are looking for walk-on kickers. Visit the football office today by 4:30 PM to sign up for a tryout.— Gator Recruiting (@_Gators_)
Yes, the offer is real and it is quite the opportunity. The Gators are hurting at kicker right now. Starter Austin Hardin was injured back in September. His replacement--redshirt Freshman Jorge Powell got hurt this past weekend at LSU, Hardin came back and took over the job.
But there is no backup plan.
So hence the open tryout. The only requirement is being a University Student with at least 12 credit hours under your belt.
Maybe Kathy Ireland has some eligibility left??
