Better than anticipated

GAINESVILLE -- Trenton Brown -- UF's first-year transfer offensive tackle from Georgia Military College -- exceeded expectations in his first-career start in the loss to Georgia last weekend. 

While Brown, a mammoth offensive lineman at 6-foot-8, 364 pounds, made a couple mistakes (holding call, illegal procedure), the redshirt-junior played well overall against the SEC's second-best pass rushing team. 

"I thought Trenton did some nice things. He's a big man. He's a large body. It's hard to get on the edges on him," coach Will Muschamp said.

"First start, going in that environment, I thought he played well."

VIDEO: Brown dished on his play, the frustrations of waiting his turn, emotions of playing against a team he was once committed to and more. 


TB Fun Facts: He wears size 17 shoes, gained over 100 pounds at GMC eating a large chicken finger plate from Zaxby's twice-a-day, may not be done growing ("X-rays on my knees before the season, and they said my growth plates are still open."), played basketball like Charles Barkley in high school and once upon a time could windmill dunk.

Why the heck did we not play this guy before? Just like with Kelvin Taylor. The offensive play calling and personnel decisions is very offensive indeed.
