Moses Jenkins turning into special teams standout

GAINESVILLE -- Moses Jenkins sightings have been few and far between since the former Lauderdale Lakes Boyd Anderson star signed with the Gators back in Febuary of 2007. There have been recent signs, however, that Jenkins is improving in practice and winning favor with his coaches.

Jenkins made special teams tackles against Georgia and South Carolina, including hits on opening kickoffs. Florida head coach Urban Meyer, also the team's special teams coordinator, even mentioned Jenkins' effort earlier this week. It's no secret among teammates that the best way to earn playing time on defense is by first proving your worth on the Gators' kickoff- or punt-coverage units. If UF takes care of The Citadel in the first half, expect plenty of playing time for Jenkins on Saturday during the second half.

Here's a great picture of Jenkins, produced by Getty Images, following the Gators' 56-6 win against South Carolina. Question: Why is Jenkins holding a camera?

Not sure why he has a camera, but I've seen players bring them on the field before and put them under the bench for post-game pictures.

I like Moses. He's had some rough patches in the secondary, but he is good on special teams. My friend works with his mother, so I can tell you all that he has been in good spirits all season, even after the concussion.

I'm pretty sure the hand holding the camera belongs to the girl making the "1" sign with her left hand. You can see at the wrist that he still has his right glove on. Besides, the skin color doesn't match. Just an illusion.

LOL great call! Common jo...

good eyes day.

jo's going to play it off like he knew the whole time. lol

I just wanted to give props to Florida. I just found out that the sexiest reporter in the world Arin Andrews of ESPN was a gator grad.

Another positive night...even though it hurts UF's SOS...Many of the UM fans are so obnoxious they deserve these frequent beat downs. Waaandy Shannon may be complaining again

Randy Shannon said post game that "This game helped recruiting more than you'll ever know"

He also complained about Paul Johnson running the option in the second half up 41-10.

Canes are BACK

to irrelevance and ESPNU

Well at least we wont have to hear from Canes fans until their highest talking and hype...the PRESEASON.
