Gators tie Vanderbilt with record 37 football players on SEC academic honor roll



Florida and Vanderbilt each had a league-high 37 football players on the winter SEC Academic Honor roll, surpassing Florida's previous high of 26 in 2004, the league office announced today. In all, 53 UF athletes were named to the honor roll including three students with 4.0 GPA's: Kelsey Bowers (volleyball), Robert Kane (football) and Megan Kerns (soccer).
