Football players are all on campus right now for summer workouts and summer school. There is a fair amount of down time on largely empty campuses before the fall semester begins.
So the Gators players are giving back to campus in a special way. In a way that honors their coach and his love for an American classic.
Football players Jarrad Davis, David Sharpe and Antonio Riles, Jr. took to campus with a box of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for students to enjoy.

Yes, football is right around the corner. Florida used the PB&J giveaway to promote student tickets. They went all around campus giving away season tickets and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

They made some students do some hilarious things on Snapchat (@floridagators) to get their snacks.
So why peanut butter and jelly sandwiches? They are a well-known favorite snack of coach Jim McElwain.
Earlier this week during his ESPN Car Wash he showed SEC Nation how to make the perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
McElwain and the Gators will be trying to repeat a strong mix as they defend their SEC East title this season.
