79 Days until Gators Kickoff:  #79 Bruch & Justino

Thursday, June 15, marks 79 days until the Florida Gators kickoff against the Michigan Wolverines in Dallas, Texas and we’re going to count down the days with the Florida roster until that game. Number 79 for the Florida Gators is occupied by two different players, redshirt freshman offensive lineman Dallas Bruch and redshirt freshman kicker Daniel Justino.

Dallas Bruch was a regular for Clearwater Central Catholic at center, but also played six games at nose guard in his senior season.

At 6-foot-3 and 275 pounds Bruch isn’t far from playing weight, but not expected to contribute at this point. He didn’t make the field last season after walking on to the program during the summer of 2016.

Daniel Justino also joined the Gator program in the summer of 2016 and redshirted last year not seeing any action.

A product of Middleburg High School, about an hour away from the Florida campus as a junior, Justino’s stats included 32 of 32 on extra points, 11 of 14 on field goals with a long of 44 and he also played receiver in high school.

At 5-foot-6 and 160 pounds, Justino isn’t likely to see the field as a receiver, but his accuracy in high school with his foot means the Gators may have another capable kicker on their hands.

Here are his senior year highlights…
