Photo Gallery: Spring football practice number 1: Florida Gators

The Florida Gators started spring practice on Saturday afternoon as year two under Billy Napier is underway.

Napier and the rest of the coaching staff are looking to build off of last year’s record but they will have to do so with a new quarterback.
