2021 defensive back Ga’Quincy McKinstry-“great team win.”

2021 defensive tackle Terion Sugick-“This game had me standing up on my toes all night. Both teams taking the lead back and forth. This was a great played on both sides but the Gators came out victorious in the end. Especially sealing the game with the 76-yard rushing touchdown.”

Defensive end/outside linebacker Zykevious Walker-“Nice win, it was a good game they never gave up. I think it’s going to be a good year for the Gators.”
