Florida Gators’ Loucheiz Purifoy can ‘go all day’

 

Miami Herald Writer

Loucheiz Purifoy is primed to do his best 1998 Champ Bailey impersonation.

Bailey, a former two-way in college, averaged close to 100 snaps per game as a junior, playing offense, defense and special teams for Georgia.

Florida’s electric defensive back may not reach such a lofty number of plays, but it’s possible.

Purifoy’s fall workload will include snaps as a starting cornerback, receiver, gunner and kick returner.

“He can run and go all day,” defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. “I think, obviously, he can do it. We feel he can do it.”

Purifoy said he has no fears of getting tired and hopes to play as many snaps as the coaching staff will allow.
