Gator Football Fan Day set for August 21st

GAINESVILLE, Fla. - The University of Florida football team will hold alltel Football Fan Day on Sunday, August 21st from 1 - 3 p.m. in the Stephen C. O'Connell Center. Admission is free and Gate 1 of the O'Connell Center will open at Noon.

Fans will be able to meet and get autographs from their favorite Gator players, coaches, the cheerleaders, Albert & Alberta, as well as the Gatorettes. The University Athletic Association will also be supplying the 2005 Gator team posters to fans in attendance for player autographs and cannot allow outside items to be brought in to the event.

"Unfortunately when players have signed various autograph items such as helmets and footballs, they have on occasion been sold to the general public," Associate Athletics Director for Compliance Jamie McCloskey said. "This practice could put the eligibility of some of our student athletes into question. We are wanting to be proactive in this area and are asking our fans to cooperate with our policy of requesting an autograph on our team poster only. The poster should be for personal use only and not intended for sale."

The Gators kick off their 2005 season versus Wyoming on Sept. 3 at 6 p.m. at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
