ESPN's Greg McElroy says its has been fun to see change to Florida's offense with more mature Kyle Trask
It’s no secret that Kyle Trask isn’t your typical Dan Mullen-coached quarterback. While Mullen says all he needs is a “willing runner” at quarterback, it’s the true dual-threats (Tim Tebow, Dak Prescott) who have been the most productive as quarterbacks in Mullen’s scheme.
Mullen inherited Trask from the Jim McElwain staff. Trask was given a Florida scholarship offer when he impressed at a UF camp (an invitation that was extended after catching Randy Shannon’s eye at a Manvel practice). The mechanics that impressed McElwain and Doug Nussmeier in 2015 have helped Trask throw an SEC-leading 10 touchdowns in the first two games of the 2020 season.
One reason that Trask is already in double digits with passing TDs is because Mullen has adjusted his offense to better fit Trask’s skill set. In a remote segment on “The Paul Finebaum Show,” McElroy notes that Mullen has gone from a “run-centric” approach to a 60:40 pass-to-run ratio.
McElroy said it’s so fun to watch the Florida offense that he’s “almost become obsessed” with tracking the maturation of Trask over the last few months. McElroy will get to see Trask and company in action on Saturday as he calls the Florida-Texas A&M on ESPN, scheduled for a noon ET kickoff from Kyle Field in College Station.
