Gator Football Flashbacks to Air on Sunshine

There's a treat in store for Gator football fans this summer as Sunshine Network premieres a special television series next week. Produced by Target Sports Media/UAA, "Gator Football Flashback" takes a look back at some of the most memorable plays and players from past seasons of Gator gridiron glory.

"Gator Football Flashback," premieres Thursday, June 20, at 7 p.m., with the first edition profiling the '90 and '91 seasons. The series will air statewide to over 5.7 million homes throughout the summer (see schedule below) exclusively on Sunshine Network, the Florida cable home of Gator athletics. In addition, as it does each summer, Sunshine is currently replaying all Gator football games from last season on Sunday mornings during "Breakfast with the Gators."

Each edition in the new series includes highlights from each season as well as interviews with coaches and those players integral in each team's success. Fans will be able to relive former head coach Steve Spurrier's first and last seasons, with players such as Shane Matthews, Heisman trophy winner Danny Wuerffel and Rex Grossman, as well the school's 1996 National Championship season.

The season highlight videos have been produced as part of the Gators Home Video Series. For more information, log on to
