Florida QB Kyle Trask weighs in on Marco Wilson's infamous shoe-throwing penalty
The Florida Gators lost in unbelievable fashion on Saturday night against LSU, as a thrown shoe cost them dearly late in the fourth quarter.
The shoe was thrown by Marco Wilson, who was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct on the play.
Obviously, many have called out Wilson for his costly mistake. But, on Wednesday’s “Marty & McGee,” Florida QB Kyle Trask praised the talented Florida DB and said his teammates have his back:
"Obviously, [Marco Wilson] made one mistake there at the end but that doesn’t summarize who he is as a player. …
First thing’s first, we should’ve never been in that situation."

“First of all, a lot of talk has been about Marco and all that, but he made a lot of great plays in that game,” Trask said. “And, obviously, he made one mistake there at the end, but that doesn’t summarize who he is as a player. He made a lot of great plays this whole entire season and in that game. First things first, we should have never been in that situation.”
Wilson is indeed a talented player, who will surely learn from this mistake. Trask’s leadership of this Florida team is evident in this response to a tough question.
