    Kyle Trask will leave the University of Florida as the #1 quarterback in multiple categories. His dedication to the Gator program will never be forgotten. Trask declared for the NFL draft where he is projected as the #5 quarterback by Walter Camp after Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, Zach Wilson, and Trey Lance. Trask is described as being a QB with "serious pocket-passing ability for the NFL...[with] very accurate...ball placement, timing, field vision, and decision making...helped by a powerful arm [also] capable of making touch passes." The big marks against him are his lack of mobility, and his propensity to fumble the ball when hit. He has been compared to Joe Flacco in terms of size and playing style. His performance at Pro Day and in the NFL Combine will determine whether he is drafted in round 2, 3 or 4. Although fans may disagree with the decision to play him in the Cotton Bowl, that poor performance should not hurt his draft stock. His performance against LSU likely knocked him out of the Heisman race, but his record-setting performance in 2020 as a whole, along with his performance at Pro Day and NFL Combine will ultimately determine where he starts his NFL career.

    As far as his legacy in Hogtown, he will always be a legend. He is the number 1 Gator QB in terms of season passer rating. He set or tied 20 different SEC and UF records. He is the record holder at UF for season passing yards (even in a shortened season), season passing touchdowns, and season passer rating. He is among the top 5 in a dozen FBS, SEC, and UF career accomplishments. Simply put, Kyle Trask is a legend.

    As of January 2nd, it is not likely that he winds up as the Heisman winner, but his numbers stack up favorably against other Heisman candidate QBs in 2020 and throughout all time. Here is how he stacks up in 2020:
    • 1 Kyle Trask FLA QB 301 437 68.88% 4283 9.80091533180778 71 43 8 20 180.0

    By season's end, Mac Jones will pass Trask in season yardage, but Kyle will still be the 2020 season leader in terms of passing TDs and number of attempts. Awards season is not over yet, but as of January 2nd he has earned the following awards:
    • Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award Finalist
    • Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award Finalist
    • Manning Award Finalist
    • Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award Finalist
    • Senior CLASS Award Finalist
    • Walter Camp Player of the Year Semifinalist
    • Maxwell Award Semifinalist
    • CBS Sports All-American First Team (Quarterback)
    • Coaches All-SEC Second Team (Quarterback)
    • Associated Press All-SEC Second Team (Quarterback)
    • 2-time Maxwell Award Player of the Week (Georgia, Arkansas)
    • 2-time CFPA National Performer of the Week (Ole Miss, Arkansas)
    • 4-time Davey O’Brien Award Great 8 (Ole Miss, Missouri, Georgia, Arkansas)
    • 5-time Manning Award Star of the Week (Ole Miss, Georgia, Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Tennessee)
    • Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week (Tennessee - Game 9)
    • SEC Co-Offensive Player of the Week (Arkansas - Game 6)
    • SEC Offensive Player of the Week (Georgia - Game 5)
    • Davey O’Brien National Quarterback of the Week (Georgia - Game 5)
    • Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award Player of the Week (Ole Miss - Game 1)
    As the #5 QB he can go anywhere between round 2 and 5. Chris Trappaso of CBS Sports projects Trask as a round 1 selection to the Washington Football Team with pick 19. USA Today has him as a round 1 selection to the Chicago Bears with pick 44. Walter Camp has him projected as a round 1 selection to Pittsburgh Steelers with pick 28.

    Regardless of Kyle's fate with the NFL, he will be mentioned among the great Gator QBs for quite some time.

    I love the kid—am PROUD of him.
    Kyle Trask is exactly what continues to exemplify THE BEST of College Football, and a Gator through and through.
    I wish there were a way for all of US, “We the FANS of Gator Nation”, to honor him in particular OURSELVES...though after that sour-noted chorus of detractors during and immediately after the Cotton Bowl, Kyle himself is no doubt already “moving on”
    ...From my P.O.V., however, all the MORE reason I feel a public note of support and heartfelt “Farewell!” may be in order. Not sure if appropriate, what form it might take, or even how to go about it if others agree, but if anyone ELSE DOES AGREE and has a suggestion as to how best to proceed, COUNT ME IN!
    He’s been CENTRAL to our success and positive growth and self-image, despite numerous obstacles and setbacks during a rough period this last coupla years, Kyle Trask has been a consistent PLUS week in/week OUT these last coupla seasons. Let’s make sure he at least knows WE’VE noticed!

In 2018 Feleipe Franks' game day passer rating was above 150 in 7 of his 12 starts. Kyle Trask hit 150 passer rating in all of his regular season games in 2020 with an average over 170! In 2019 Trask averaged over 150 in 7 of 12 games, with 4 games averaging 147. Trask's worst performance of 2019 was better than 95% of the game performances by all other Gator QBs since 2010.

    You got THAT right!
    Agreed, 100%!!!
    Thanks—as I say, wish there was a way to bring him back (maybe “Senior Day” NEXT SEASON?) to a full Swamp and really give him a big full-throated CHEER once we are able to really DO that, post-“COVID 19”...
    Something fully, officially pre-arranged (might have to wait another year, but whenever that is truly, properly DOABLE!!!).
