Trask ready to lead team after years of waiting

It will be a strange feeling for Kyle Trask on Saturday. One he hasn’t felt in nearly seven years.

The Gators’ redshirt junior will be a starting quarterback, once again.

But this opportunity wasn’t supposed to come. A former high school backup, Trask’s role on the team was supposed to be relegated to donning a headset, motioning hand signals from the sideline and waiting. A lot of waiting.

Waiting for UF to take a commanding lead on an FCS team so he could get a taste of being on the field, even if it was garbage time.
