We are now less than a week away from the start of 2019 College Football Season when Florida and Miami renew their rivalry in Orlando. On Saturday, the Gators announced the legendary player who would serve as the team’s honorary captain. Lito Sheppard will get the honor in Orlando next weekend.
Sheppard picked off 8 passes during his Florida career and returned 2 punts for touchdowns in the 2000 season. He was a first-team All-SEC selection in 2000 and 2001 before going on to a 10-year NFL career. He was inducted into Florida’s Hall of Fame last year.
Florida also revealed their uniforms for next weekend. The Gators will wear its traditional orange helmets, blue jerseys and white pants. Along with the uni combo, Florida will be sporting new Jordan 1 cleats.
