"I am going to be a more vocal leader, a practice leader; any type of way I can, I want to be a leader for the team,
said Sharpe at SEC media day. "I want to be a guy someone looks up to and that they can come ask me anything. I definitely am going around with a chip on my shoulder."
A chip Sharpe and the team has had since last season, when UF lost its last three games of the season.
“We have all talked about it a lot. It was very disappointing to us, we put in a lot. But we use it as motivation going into the off-season. We take it as motivation and everyone is working hard. We are ready to have our strongest season so far."
