Kyle Trask will reportedly not participate in the Senior Bowl
Former Florida QB Kyle Trask’s path to the NFL hit a bump in the road this week as he will not participate in the Senior Bowl.
It was not immediately clear when this decision was made, but Dane Brugler of The Athletic reported that Trask was not on the Senior Bowl roster. “I’m told it is an ankle injury that will keep him from participating this week.”
A Heisman Trophy finalist for the 2020 season, Trask set single-season school records with 4,283 yards passing and 43 TDs as Florida produced one of the best seasons for an offense in college football history.
Trask had a rough end to his Florida career with a loss in the Cotton Bowl against Oklahoma. He was 16 of 28 passing for 158 yards. He didn’t have his top four receivers, and threw three interceptions in the first half after he had just five the rest of the season.
For the season, the Manvel, Texas native led the country in total touchdowns (46) and touchdown passes, while he was second in passing yards.
Trask and Florida served notice that it would be a big season in the season opener at Ole Miss when he was 30-for-42 passing for 416 passing yards and six touchdowns. Trask became the sixth Gator in school history, and the first since Chris Leak to throw six touchdown passes in a game.
