Hundreds attend Gator Fan Day at O'Connell Center


College football is right around the corner and hundreds of fans in North Central Florida are already cheering for the Orange and Blue.

Fans were able to meet the team this weekend at Gators Fan Day at the O’Connell Center’s Exactech Arena.

Gator fans were able to meet their favorite football players and get pictures of trophies and Albert and Alberta.

The Gatorettes and Spirit Squads were also signing posters for fans.
One Gator dad says he loves seeing other parents bring their kids to Gator events.

"Oh I love it, I just seem like we are back home, yeah I love it here… I think it's nostalgia of their own time and they want to share that with the kids,” Dan Lamontagne said.

There are less than two weeks to go before the Gators season opener against Miami.
