Former Gators are making their rounds to check out new Florida kicker Eddy Pineiro.
Two weeks ago, former UF kicker Caleb Sturgis visited the indoor practice facility while Pineiro was practicing. Sturgis holds the school records for field goals (70) and attempts (88).
Judd Davis stopped by Wednesday to watch Pineiro, a midyear enrollee who is ranked the No. 1 junior college kicker for 2016. Davis, the 1993 Lou Groza Award winner, took to Twitter last month and questioned Pineiro’s lack of game experience.
But Davis lined up side-by-side with Pineiro on Wednesday and both drilled 55-yard field goals at the same time. A UF trainer did a cartwheel in the back of the end zone as the kicks sailed through the uprights.
After Florida’s kicking nightmare in 2015, this is an understandable celebration.
