Florida's Grier, Harris taking QB competition into fall camp
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida quarterback Will Grier delivered the first and last big plays of the team's spring game Saturday.
Fellow quarterback Treon Harris had a couple in between.
Together, they gave the Gators some hope that coach Jim McElwain's first season in Gainesville could be better than expected.
Grier was 7-of-9 passing for 130 yards in the annual Orange & Blue game, leading the first-team offense on three touchdown drives. Harris, who shared snaps with the starters, was 6 of 9 for 94 yards and tossed a 5-yard touchdown pass to C'yontai Lewis.
Although Grier took the first snap Saturday and has been ahead of Harris since he missed four practices following the shooting death of a 16-year old cousin in Miami, McElwain said the competition will continue into fall camp.
