Freshman quarterback Treon Harris has sparked Florida’s toothless offense, and the former Miami Booker T. Washington star was named the SEC’s co-freshman of the week following his performance in a 34-10 win at Vanderbilt.
The dual-threat talent was 13 of 21 for 215 yards and two rushing touchdowns, generating a balanced attack while avoiding costly mistakes.

The Gators are 2-0 with Harris at the helm and the offense has synergy for the first time in years.
