"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

Gavin Dickey Update

Former Gators Quarterback Gavin Dickey who was selected by the Seattle Mariners in the June draft is now officially signed and well into the start of his professional career with the Everett AquaSox. I haven't made it up to see him play in person yet, but it looks like he's off to a bit of a slow start batting only .225. On the bright side he's getting a ton of playing time, is second on the team in stolen bases and has shown some power. A good article on Dickey and his transition from Gator QB to the minor leagues can be found here.

"It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Not too many guys get to run out of the tunnel to 95,000 people screaming. Playing in the Swamp is one of those things you can't explain." -- Gavin Dickey on playing football at UF

Thanks for the update. I always thought that Florida should have used Gavin more on stealing bases. It's good to see that he is getting used to the system and I'm sure he will contribute to the team in the near future. Support him--he's a true GATOR! Mike

Indeed he has. He's playing for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers now.
