A Look Into Football Practice With the Florida Gators

Sports By

The University of Florida Gators have everything you could want from a top college football team: national titles, Heisman trophy winners, a terrific GoPro video. Yes, by attaching cameras to the helmets of players (notably quarterback Austin Appleby) during a practice, you get to experience what the players do, minus the pain of being taken down by a 250-pound linebacker.

The video also gives you the sense of just how mentally challenging football is at the elite college level: After all, there are 21 other guys out there and many of them are unnervingly fast. Watch the Gators in action, and appreciate why most of us aren’t meant to play at a level above intramural.
