Florida football to recognize seniors, others in final home game of 2022

The Florida Gators will host the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday in their last home game of the 2022 season. The game will serve as the football program’s Senior Day, recognizing 17 players in Billy Napier’s first season in charge of the Orange and Blue.

The game will also serve as the program’s Salute to Service game, honoring members of the armed forces, veterans, and local first responders throughout the day. The Gators will also honor their 1992 and 1997 football teams.

Those seniors will be doing their part to help the Gators achieve bowl eligibility this season. Making a bowl game would guarantee the Gators additional practices that would go a long way in setting the tone for the 2023 season.

Of the 17 seniors the Gators will honor, only four scholarship players can not return next season: Ventrell Miller, Trey Dean, Amari Burney, and Jordan Pouncey. This implies that the Gators will be active in the transfer portal and that Billy Napier’s roster overhaul is nowhere near finished, as explained in my column last week.

Saturday’s matchup against South Carolina is sold out, marking the 4th time the Gators have sold out a football game in Billy Napier’s first season at the helm. Kickoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. EST, with Senior Day activities to precede the kick. The game will be broadcast on the SEC Network.
