Florida turned to the student body to help with its depth at the kicker position and now we know why.
Jim McElwain announced on the SEC coaches teleconference that walk-on kicker Jorge Powell is out for the season. Powell sustained a “significant” injury in the LSU game.
Starting kicker Austin Hardin isn’t 100 percent healthy, but McElwain said he expects him to be ready to go for the UGA game.
As far as where the Gators turn to now, 216 students tried out to be the team’s next kicker.
“As long as they can flip it on up there through the uprights, I’m good with it,” McElwain said.
