It wasn’t the kind of ending he wanted to close the 2020 season, but Florida QB Kyle Trask took time to reflect on his unlikely career at Florida. The Heisman Trophy contended noted how a guy who grew up 20 minutes from Houston became the quarterback at Florida, and a fan favorite in 2020.

In a farewell video to Florida, Trask said he was so appreciative to have Gator Nation behind him, and he recalled several memories of leading the Gators.

“I feel that it’s best to chase my dreams of playing in the NFL,” he said. “I’ve had dreams of playing in the NFL ever since I was a kid. So just to have this opportunity to play at the next level, it’s crazy, and I’m just going to try and make the most of it.”

Missing four top receivers, Trask had three first-half interceptions in a forgettable Cotton Bowl performance against Oklahoma on Wednesday. But he was more reflective in the video about his entire career.

“I’m always going to miss running out of that tunnel,” Trask said. “I’ll always going to remember the days, you’re running out and you hear 90,000 screaming fans going crazy. There’s literally no feeling like it in the world. … I’ll always be a Gator, I’ll always bleed orange and blue.”

Trask completed 69 percent of his passes this season for 4,283 yards, 43 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
