WATCH: Florida opens practice with Oklahoma drill; QBs and RBs go through individual work

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Three practices into the spring, there is an unmistakable theme to the way new Florida coach Dan Mullen is running his operation.

High energy.

After stretching Tuesday in the indoor practice facility, the Gators ran through their version of the “Oklahoma drill,” where two players go head to head trying to push the other out of the designated space or take them down.

Mullen jogged down the sideline from one position group to the next, initiating the next round as teammates circled the selected players cheering them on. It was a competitive and physical way to set the tone for the rest of the afternoon.

The Gators then went outside for individual drills, which were open to the media.

Here’s video of the highlights from the quarterback and running backs.

Mullen worked closely with QBs coach Brian Johnson through a number of the drills. Redshirt sophomore Feleipe Franks, redshirt sophomore Kyle Trask, redshirt freshman Jake Allen and freshman early enrollee Emory Jones worked in that order again.

The wind was strong on the practice field and affected the ball when the QBs took turns throwing into the net from distance. For what it’s worth, though, Franks and Trask continue to look the sharpest of the bunch.

Florida is set to have another practice open to the public on Saturday afternoon to give fans another chance to see up close for themselves the way this new staff is running things.
