The Gators are in the dog days of training camp, but coach Jim McElwain was ecstatic about the team’s latest performance in Sunday’s two-a-day session.
“There was some real spark there,” he said. “Yesterday’s two-a-day was as good a back-to-back practices I’ve ever seen. The energy. The attention to detail. The guys really came out prepared.”
The Gators are halfway through training camp, and entering Week 3 of preseason practice McElwain is emphasizing a sense of urgency at what he considers the most critical juncture of camp.
“At this point in camp is really when a lot of teams decide they’re either really going to get better or they’re going to try to just endure to get through the grind of what is two-a-days. …We’re kind of getting to that separation point moving forward.”
