    Kyle Trask had a top-10 statistical year for a Gator QB. His 66.9% completion percentage for the year ranks him #3 in Gator history behind Jeff Driskel 2013 and Tim Tebow 2009. His 2941 yards passing in one season ranks him #8 behind Rex Grossman 2001 & 2002, Tim Tebow 2007, Danny Wuerffel 1995 & 1996, and Chris Leak 2004 & 2006. If we add Feleipe Franks' 698 yards to Trasks' total, this would be the #2 season in terms of passing yardage at 3639 yards--right behind Rex Grossman's 3896 yard campaign in 2001 and just ahead of Danny Wuerffel's 3625 yard campaign in 1996! His 25 TDs in a season rank him #7, but with Franks' 5 TDs added in this would be tied for #4 with Tim Tebow at 30 passing TDs. His passer rating of 156.2 rank him at #9, and a composite of Franks and Trask in 2019 would be ranked #6--just ahead of Tim Tebow 2009 with a rating of 164.7.

    For perspective, here is the ranking of Gator QBs by passer rating since Tim Tebow left in 2009:
    1. Feleipe Franks 173.4 (2019 weeks 1-4 Florida)
    2. Feleipe Franks + Kyle Trask 164.7 (2019 Florida combined)
    3. Kyle Trask 156.2 (2019 Florida)
    4. Will Grier 145.6 (2015 weeks 1-6 Florida)
    5. Feleipe Franks 143.4 (2018 Florida)
    6. Kyle Trask 157.0 (2016-2019 Florida)
    7. Feleipe Franks 135.7 (2016-2019 Florida)
    8. Jeff Driskel 134.1 (2011-2015 Florida and La Tech)
    9. Malik Zaire 133.5 (2014-2017 Notre Dame and Florida)
    10. John Brantley 133.3 (2008-2011 Florida)
    11. Jacoby Brissett 131.3 (2011-2015, Florida and NC State)
    12. Skyler Mornhinweg 128.2 (2013 Florida)
    13. Austin Appleby 128.0 (2016 Florida)
    14. Treon Harris 127.1 (2014-2015 Florida)
    15. Tyler Murphy 123.9 (2013-2014 Florida and Boston College)
    16. Tyler Murphy 121.1 (2013 Florida)
    17. Luke Del Rio 118.6 (2016 Florida)
    18. Luke Del Rio 118.3 (2015-2017 Florida)
    19. Jeff Driskel 117.8 (2011-2014 Florida)
    20. Jordan Reed 117.2 (2010 Florida, moved to TE 2011-2012)
    21. Austin Appleby 114.3 (2013-2016 Purdue and Florida)
    22. Jacoby Brissett 109.6 (2011-2012 Florida)
    23. Malik Zaire 104.9 (2017 Florida)
    TLDR: QB play at Florida has been woeful since Tim Tebow graduated. Will Grier showed promise in his half season of 2015. Note that Grier racked up passer ratings of 162.7 and 175.5 at West Virginia in 2017 and 2018.

    Finally, here are the QBs that have been coached by Dan Mullen and his protege QB coaches:
    • Tyson Lee 2009 107.0
    • Chris Relf 2010 141.5
    • Chris Relf 2011 121.0
    • Tyler Russell 2012 135.4
    • Dak Prescott 2013 121.6
    • Dak Prescott 2014 151.5
    • Dak Prescott 2015 152.7
    • Nick Fitzgerald 2016 124.3
    • Nick Fitzgerald 2017 117.1
    • Feleipe Franks 2018 143.4
    • Feleipe Franks/ Kyle Trask 2019 164.7
    • Kyle Trask 2019 156.2
    Trask is the best Mullen-coached QB since Mullen left Florida in 2008! Kyle has definitely stepped up as a top-10 performer against some great Gator QBs, and as a Mullen protege.
