Greatest Gator Career Records -- 1

We wrap up our summertime stroll through the Gator record book with a dozen of the most impressive and unbreakable marks in school history.

First, I want to make it clear I had to leave off a bunch of records, particularly as they relate to a particular position because of limiting myself to a dozen. Additionally, I limited myself to three Tim Tebow records because frankly there are about 6-10 records of his that could stand for years and years to come.

Here are some of the marks that missed the cut for one reason or another:

Jeff Chandler -- 368 points
Bart Edmiston -- 114 consecutive PATs
John Reaves -- 59 interceptions
Tim Tebow -- 203 passes without an interception
Chris Doering -- 31 receiving TDs
Aaron Hernandez -- 111 receptions by a TE

That said, let's begin our look at some incredible standards that have been set by Gators over the years.

No. 12 Alex Brown -- 33 QB sacks ---- He had a performance against Tennessee in 1999 that may never be forgotten and Alex Brown continued to harass opposing quarterbacks throughout his Gator career. The Jasper (FL) Hamilton County product might be the fastest edge rusher Florida has ever had in a 4-3 alignment and that speed forced teams to either double-team him or pay the price. At a school that has produced the likes of Kevin Carter, Huey Richardson, Wilber Marshall and Jack Youngblood, Brown's sack total is six more than second place Alonzo Johnson.

No. 11 Eric Wilbur -- 9,900 yards punting ---- If you averaged 45 yards a punt for your career and booted the ball 55 times a season and were the No. 1 punter for your entire career then you would tie this record. Wilbur also holds the school record with 231 punts and that one probably is safe, too. He was about as reliable as it gets and had the opportunity to be the prime guy for all four seasons. Chas Henry is about to begin his fourth season as the Florida punter, but he kicks so infrequently he's barely halfway (4,837 yards) to Wilbur's total.

That's part one of six on this subject. Coming up next we'll have a fairly recent passing number and a long standing receiving total.
