Jeff Demps Will Play Football For UF
Good news for Gator fans… running back Jeff Demps, who rushed for 531 yards and 3 touchdowns in 2010, will be playing football for Florida this season. There was some uncertainty as to Demps football future because he was thought to have been considering turning in his football pads in order to concentrate on running track and making the 2012 Olympic squad.
But all the speculation has been put to rest by Demps himself who released the following statement.
Statement from Jeff Demps: “When I came to Florida I wanted to compete at a very high level in both sports and I’ve done that. Football has been my first love, but I also love running track. All of my coaches have been supportive and I’ve always been able to concentrate on whatever sport I’m competing in during that season… I concentrated on track this past spring and summer, and I’m now ready to concentrate on football. I’m looking forward to getting back together with my football teammates and having a great senior season.”
