Steve Spurrier sees ‘huge year’ coming for Feleipe Franks
Feleipe Franks took a big step forward last season for Florida. Former Gators head coach Steve Spurrier thinks Franks is due for an even bigger leap in the upcoming season.
Spurrier spoke at SEC Media Days on Tuesday and talked about Franks. He picked the junior quarterback to win the Heisman Trophy in the upcoming season and says he could have a “huge year.”
Steve Spurrier said he's sold on #Gators QB Feleipe Franks: 'Feleipe is a very talented player. Now he’s sort of getting it all together. So he could have a huge year … a huge year. He has receivers as good as anybody.’

Franks only passed for nine touchdowns and eight interceptions as a freshman. He showed major improvement as a sophomore, throwing for 24 touchdowns and six interceptions, while rushing for seven scores.
Now that he has even more experience and will be in his second season under Dan Mullen, maybe Spurrier’s prediction will come true.
