A few days ago, no one was sure what Florida running back Jeff Demps was going to do: run track, or play football for the Gators.
By way of multiple media outlets, the senior has put to rest all the speculation by announcing he will finish 2011 in a football uniform.
According to 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.”
However, coach Will Muschamp further said, “As I stated last week in Birmingham, Jeff Demps will be joining our football program when our squad reports for camp on Aug. 5 and when we start practice on Aug. 6. I met with him today and Jeff is looking forward to focusing on football for his upcoming senior season.”
