Gators' Jeff Demps will return to track team this season



Five-time track and field All-American and four-time NCAA Champion senior sprinter Jeff Demps has decided he will compete for the Gators this season.

Florida track and field coach Mike Holloway said on Monday he was unsure whether Demps would return for his final season, but would welcome his return if Demps decided to compete.

Demps, who hopes for a 2012 Olympic bid to London, plans to pursue a track and field professional career after his time at Florida.

The Gators open the season this Saturday at the Alabama Invitational in Birmingham.
