The bye week for Land O'Lakes provided first-year coach Matt Kitchie an opportunity to work on building team chemistry.

After taking Monday off, the Gators went hard at one another Wednesday and Thursday.
As incentive to return for the Gators' JV game Thursday, Kitchie held a talent show.

"I have to tell you it was awesome," Kitchie said. "The kids got up and performed and did things. It probably sounds dumb, but it created a lot of team chemistry."

The top performance, in Kitchie's opinion, went to 6-foot-4, 240 pound defensive end Zack Fisher. His talent: harmonica.

"He was unbelievable," Kitchie said. "He did Silent Night, then some kind of reggae version of something with some teammates behind him dancing."
