The University of Florida football team held an open practice on Saturday morning and thanks to Jack Joyer, we received a photo of three Hillsborough County products now playing for the Gators.
One of those players, of course, is Joyer’s son, Hunter, who played for Tampa Catholic and Wesley Chapel. The other two pictured are another ex-TC star, offensive lineman Chaz Green, and former Armwood lineman Matt Patchan. Hunter and Green are entering their sophomore season while Patchan is a junior.
Other county players on UF’s roster include Plant product Grant Van Aman, who is punting, linebacker Scott Peek of Freedom, punter Justin Vogel of Berkeley Prep and running back Matt Jones of Armwood.
Saturday’s open practice at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium was held in conjunction with Verizon Fan Day, which was scheduled for 3-6 p.m. at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center.
In addition to seeing Gators players Saturday, fans also got their first look at the newly renovated West Concourse. There’s been several major upgrades to that section of the stadium, including improvements in spacing, concessions and restrooms.
