Gators suspended against UT Martin

The Florida Gators announced suspensions for two players just before kickoff against UT Martin.

Brad Stewart and Luke Ancrum “did not live up to the Gator standard,” according to Florida.

This is the second game in a row that Stewart has missed for “not living up to the Gator standard.” The safety from Louisiana had worked his way into a starting role in 2018 before off field issues starting affecting his playing time. That seems to be the case for him again in 2019. Compounding the suspension is the absence of starting safety Jeawon Taylor today with a shoulder injury. The Gators will have just hawn Davis and Donovan Stiner at safety against UT Martin.

Luke Ancrum, a senior from Sebring, has played in 19 games during his career including the season opener against Miami. He recorded one solo tackle against the Canes in week 0.

Additionally Florida announced that Amari Burney would miss the game with an injury.

A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
