Bulls fans, meet Mike Ford
Bulls fans, meet Mike Ford.
After more than three scoreless quarters, the freshman running back from
Sarasotabroke loose for a 26-yard run, then scored on a 4-yard run, leading the Green team to a 6-0 lead in Saturday’s spring game at Raymond James Stadium.
Ford, playing his first football in a year and a half, had one carry and one catch in the first three quarters, then took over on one fourth-quarter drive. He rushed for two first downs, then went 26 yards down the left side, knocking defensive back Louis Gachette backwards with a shoulder as he went out of bounds. On the next play, he rushed to his right for the game’s first score, giving him 51 yards on the drive.
