Gators Name QB Feleipe Franks Starter For Opener

Gators head coach Dan Mullen has named redshirt sophomore Feleipe Franks their starting QB for the opener against Charleston Southern. Franks beat out Kyle Trask (redshirt sophomore) and true freshman Emory Jones for the position. 

Franks also entered 2017 as the starter for the Gators, but did not perform up to expectations and was benched multiple times. He threw 1,438 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions in his eight starts for the Gators in 2017.
