25 days to Gator football! #25 Lee McGriff


Aerospace Cubicle Engineer (ACE)
#25 Lee Colson McGriff was a walk-on wide receiver from Tampa, Florida who played in Doug Dickey‘s Florida Gator option offense from 1972-1974. As a wide receiver in the option offense he made the best of his rare catches, including a great, high flying leap and touchdown from Don Gaffney. Lee finished his career with 87 receptions, 1551 yards, and 13 touchdowns. He was 2nd team All SEC in 1973 and 1st team All SEC in 1974. Lee was the recipient of the Fergie Ferguson Award.

McGriff graduated with a bachelor's degree in journalism in 1976, and was an undrafted free agent for the expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He later returned to the University of Florida as an assistant, and many years later became a Gator sports announcer succeeding Scot Brantley. He was later named to the University of Florida Athletic Association as a Gator Great. Lee is the father of Travis McGriff (1995-1998), son of a Gator track star, and uncle to backup quarterback Ryan McGriff (2011-2014). Lee is also a member of the Florida-Georgia Hall of Fame.
