Gator teammates fight over football cleats, police called
GAINESVILLE, FL - Florida coach Will Muschamp has another issue to deal with this week.
According to the University Police Department, reserve quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg, son of New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, got into a fight with teammate Gerald Willis outside the stadium Monday night.
Maj. Brad Barber, a UPD spokesman, said officers went to Florida Field around 7 p.m. after receiving calls about the fight. He said both players declined to press charges, closing the case.
The scuffle came hours after the team suspended quarterback Treon Harris. Authorities are investigating sexual assault allegations against him in an early Sunday incident.
Mornhinweg, a third-year sophomore from Philadelphia, played in three games late last season. Willis, a freshman from New Orleans, has four tackles and half a sack in two games.
